I'm currently exhibiting earlier, mixed media works at the Northwest Arkansas Community Creative Center (Nadine Baum Studios) located at 505 W. Spring St, Fayetteville, AR 72701. Featured works are from my Remnants and Divine Messengers series.
Remnants was derived from a visit to an abandoned mannequin refurbishing warehouse in which I found the line between the living and inanimate blurred irrevocably.
Divine Messengers was inspired by my travels throughout Western and Eastern Europe. The work focuses on images of angelic statues found in cemeteries, churches and city streets of Europe. I utilize sketchbook and photo images that are layered with various media such as pencil, acrylic, Prismacolor, charcoal, ink, solvent transfer, and found paper and other objects as a way to reflect the layering of various periods of art, architecture, and religion that are found throughout much of modern Europe.
