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.
