I have three new collage pieces on display at Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach for the 6''x6'' Show. I am exploring the idea of space, emptiness, longing, and dimensions seen and unseen. I am really interested in caves and secret passageways which come together in "Cavern." The "Green Room" pieces are really about emptiness and ghosts of something that once was. For these pieces I meticulously eliminated the furniture from idyllic home decorating catalogs. This would have been much easier using Photoshop, but somehow the labor and struggle to cut away and replace empty space is equally part of the work. I have a feeling this is just the beginning of a new series. Each piece is collage on panel and can be purchased online here.
