Giving Voice

Updated: Nov 10, 2018

2 December 2011 I have long wondered what my creative voice is. What do I have to say? How would I say it? I have drawing ability but technical skill seems to be only half of the issue. Rather accidentally, I started to create assemblages. I have found that other artists working with assemblages usually fall into one of three categories: Spontaneous; artists who put their pieces together in a very busy, free-form way, Utilitarian; artists whose work ranges from steam-punk to appliance-like objects, and the Animated; artists who create works that look like animals or people, that have a lighter, more colorful feel to them. My work does not easily fit into the usual categories of assemblages. My pieces are much more formal in nature with a very strong graphic foundation. Although they are created with found objects, I combine them to create very precious looking work. Like reliquaries holding sacred objects, they command a kind of attention but they certainly don't scream. I am pleased to have finally found my voice.
