Mixed Media & Sculpture
Assemblage objects emerged in my painting after I tentatively glued rubber gloves and coiled wire to a portrait of my ex-husband. The idea expanded when a gallery in Marfa sent me a bank bag to incorporate into my work. The goal was to examine the relationship between art and money. But something else happened for me; the spatial relationships clicked.
This relationship between what is flat, but painted to look real, and what is really a three-dimensional object, has become a fascination. And even more, I have begun experimenting with techno-trash, found and discarded objects of technology mixed with dolls parts. The result is a hybrid of man and machine.
