Mixed Media: hand-made paper, digitized photographs, acrylic, pastel, corrugated cardboard, graphite on canvas panel
14 1/8 x 14 1/8 x 2” (framed)

The “Postcards from the Past” series explores images of my family and images from my childhood: digitized photographs disassembled and reassembled into collages with mixed media.

The digitizing and collage processes are parallel to the memory process which allows me to duplicate and relive and reconstruct the past.

Neutral images from the past carry with them good or bad
messages depending upon their interpretation in the present.

Some provide comfort.

Some provide closure.


P.S. I hope the Maloys would not be offended that I chose to use green for this collage.
