249 - Jessica Porterfield - USA

Jessica Porterfield - USA - collage on canvas - 8x10 inches - Materials:
primed canvas, acrylic paint, scrapbook paper, hand carved stamp image, gel medium
Artist Statement:

Never before in time have there been so many mediums to combine to express beauty or political statements or spiritual truth than currently.  one can intermingle a polymer clay piece with a found object
or that perfect book page or scrap of altered paper and make something so essential.

Collage satisfies some deep itch since it marries so may other art forms together.  The painting, the tactile tearing of paper, and fitting together disparate pieces of paper or found objects is deeply moving
and necessary to me.
