Mixed Media Collage
Kitsch. Pleasingly distasteful? Definitely creative. It can be melodramatic, overdone, gaudy or quirky. It’s so bad that it’s cool. You’re never quite sure if it’s supposed to be serious or not. It’s also appreciated as naïve and beautiful by those with a discerning eye and a refined sense of aesthetic.
I create mixed media collage on a variety of substrates. Gluing technique varies depending on the paper, substrate or ephemera. The subject matter always starts as one thing and evolves to something else. My work can be described as quirky, strange, unique; and yes sometimes kitschy.
