Album Description
"These collages were created first in the presence of a live model, working quickly, in charcoal and pastel, and again, later, alone in the studio, furiously tearing and pasting images from magazines, various language newspapers, print publications, and previous drawings. In this way, both in theme and technique, I am working with the intersection of disciplined control and randomized instinct. Observational drawing coexists with a myriad of selected patterns, colors, and images from media, assembled and pasted down like broad swaths of paint. The title of the series, ""EnSamblage"", is an invented word referring to both a musical ensemble of parts, and a visual assemblage of elements. As a feminist artist, my first commitment is to painting other women, the human face, and figure. Whether working with figurative descriptions or with the abstract use of materials, I approach all my subjects directly and with abandon. Additionally, in my quest to discover and reveal what is most essential, the drawing aspect of these images is created with my non-dominant left hand."
