The Construct Series incorporates layered collages made of hand- made paper, acrylic paint, mesh, wire, hard- ware, found objects and more within wood and canvas struc- tures. I call my works construc- tions because like a builder placing one brick upon the other, I gather my materials and construct my own unique world. Each work can have four, five, six layers or more. Each layer is it’s own creation. The layers talk to me, eliciting a response and often the response is another layer, building upon the forms and surface to create something new. It’s like building a city or a house, a space to “be in”. These collages become isolated worlds, metallic and jewel-like.WEAVE & WARP Acrylic, cardboard, handmade colored and painted papers, mesh, pearls, hardware, and wire in a wood & canvas structure 48" x 48" x 4"
