During the past few years, my most private works have been collages.Despite a passion for dark chocolate, I find myself picking chocolate bars for their wrappers rather than for their cocoa content.Packaging – from bath soap to boxes that once contained chewing gum – begins to take on emotional resonance.My addiction to sudoku, a trip to South Federal Boulevard for Dim Sum or several 1933 Fortune magazines purchased at a garage sale become both inspiration and art supplies.During walks with our dog, I may find lenses from a broken flashlight or 30 cardboard disks with the letters “HA” printed on them. They’re pocketed for future use.Some collages have incorporated human images.This comes as a shock to me. For years, I’ve avoided humanimagery, relying instead on flowers as symbolic people.I also continue to paint, and wonder at how these pathsseem to be converging.
