Mixed media collage

5” x 7” matted and framed in silver to 9.5” x 11.25”

Inspired by the poem is it too late by gwynneth green

 

is it too late

 

throw me line

i’ve fallen once more

the rabbit hole

it’s deeper than ever

lined with

barbs and thorns

reopening wounds

that had been stitched

but never totally healed 

oozing memories

that i thought

had been replaced 

is it too late

to avoided

the pain 

is it too late

to call for help 

is it too late

to mend these scars  

is it too late

to be saved

throw me line

ARTISTS STATEMENT

 

My narrative mixed media sculptures and collages incorporate found objects and depict provocative themes. I address environmental and societal toxicity through 3D "cautionary tales" about contemporary issues. The incorporation of discarded, manufactured litter "litter"-ally illustrates these tales. I work in various media, including collage, painting, and sculpture. The characters and settings are iconic and range from prehistoric to futuristic - strange and fabulous creatures and animals, fossilized dinosaurs, mythical unicorns, aliens and humans or just body parts. Most of my sculptures feature my handmade clay and plaster figures built upon bits of metal or rock, along with salvaged materials that may be left as is or manipulated through carving and painting. They are then integrated into conceptual diorama settings with trompe l'oeil or surrealistic backgrounds which become powerful assemblages imbued with spirituality and raw emotion.
