“Inside Outside Mixed Media Series”
In these mixed media pieces that combine my love of painting and construction, I aimed to go beyond my signature painterly strokes and meld together the world of painting and 3D elements of collage.
These are my latest works of art, made around mid July 2021. In these works, I challenged myself to enter the world of collage while staying true to my identity as a painter and allowing the painting to peek through the collage construction. I found the juxtaposition of the gestural architectural gray-scale paintings mixed together with the smooth surface of the collage to be satisfying to my sense of aesthetics. Moreover, in these pieces, I aimed to be explorative while pushing the envelope of the mediums along with the subject matter. I intended for the artwork to intrigue in multiple ways, be it the combination of mediums along with the play on themes and how they intersect and come along together. As a whole, these mixed media paintings’ collages are allowing the viewer to enter my world which doesn’t only consist of me as a painter, but as a designer, a thinker – an innovative visionary. Like all of my work, the art mirrors the person that I am, and features my current interest and what circulates in my head and world. Thus, the artwork presented is a reflection of my contemplation and ponderment on the theme while allowing my imagination to run free and play in the art field.
