Mixed Media Multiplied

I have a couple of my older works of art on display in the Del Ray Artisans' "Mixed Media Multiplied" exhibition that is running from June 26th until July 19th. Every work of art in the exhibition was created from at least three or more materials. My artwork that's up, "Fridge" and "Abstract Trees," was created during my last two years as a painting student in college. These were part of a series that I worked on where I took a stretched canvas, painted it, then painted some unstretched canvas that I cut up and stitched into the stretched canvas. I also dabbled in using different materials to create these mixed media pieces--typically using acrylic paint, oil pastels, and collaging magazine cut-outs.

Although I studied painting in college, my heart was always in collage. Now, only a little over a year out of school, I've been focusing completely on collage. These two mixed media pieces are definitely a walk down memory lane.
