Summer to Autumn 'Foglia Series'

Posted on: Monday, August 27, 2007

Even though we are still in the wading waters of late summer, I have been tinkering with a collage series that is somewhat evocative of autumn. The 'Foglia ('leaf', in Italian) Series' is based on a mixed media collage that I made in 2006 called Foglia 01. All of the foglia images incorporate recycled papers and fabrics, scans of urban street graffiti, and actual dried leaves that are layered and woven into the construction of the final image. I view this series as an exercise in how new life might take shape from organic matter and urban detritus - a melding of disparate parts that might somehow coexist and suggest renewal and revitalization.

The 'Foglia Series' is also viewable at my online portfolio.
