Artist Statement for current show...
After owning a design build company whose focus was murals, graphics, signs, interiors and sometimes architecture for forty-five years, Bloomington Design, I found that those artforms required wood, metal, machinery, ladders, chisels, paint, sandpaper, brushes and other various tools. Having dabbled in fine art my entire life, I was seeking an art medium that did not require that type of equipment.
Four years ago when I was cleaning my studio I discovered my old designer’s morgue of idea clippings from thirty years ago and thought that they were too interesting to throw out. That was the stimulus to use them as collage material, needing only a small sheet of paper, an exacto knife, a glue stick and those thousands of images. Clean and simple.
I enjoy problem solving and collages provided many problems to resolve. Sometimes based on color, on a word, or on imagery, it was the perfect art form to use especially in the Winter months, since I could actually create these on the dining table. After producing a few, they seemed to be made to order for digital reproduction, enlargement, and printing on various substrates, and that is what this show is about.
