The Electric Conversation
TEC is an interrogative dialog between painting and photography, in which two artists working within the technical boundaries of their respective media produce similar (and different) responses to the natural world.
Creating this current body of work is where I get to let loose. When I paint these vessels and shapes I feel like a sculptor hand-building a pot or using a potter’s wheel. But instead of clay, I use paint, mixed media and collage to create a 3-D effect on paper. I try to establish a satisfying balance of shapes and textures that draw the eye through and around the objects as if it is a still-life.
These mixed media sculptures use plaster, papier mache, clay, acrylics and found objects. Each figure is unique, yet clearly part of the same family. Each has her story to tell - see them and imagine your own version.
