Swimming with Matisse
mixed media on paper
These collages were made as an emotional response to memories of place. From the jungles and waterfalls of Jamaica and Hawaii to the rolling dunes of the Cape and turquoise seas of Florida, these watery places are filled with air and dreams. Just as the forms and planes of the collage do not conform to man-made rules, these seascapes seek to exist in a different reality.
