“Minds & Hearts”

Altered Books and Torn Painted Paper Collage

On display at Vesuvio February 6-28

The pieces that incorporate the heart shape were made specifically for this show. I wouldn’t say I am normally inspired by “Hallmark” sentimentality and, besides the iconic shape, any sentiments conveyed in the word-ology (Writing?  Poetry?  Verse?)  are not particularly romantic but can touch on ideas pertaining to relationships. Joining the heart work are some abstract book assemblage and painted paper collage – all about the essence of shape and color and whatever sensibilities they arouse in the viewer.
