Mixed Media - 2014
Working in Mixed Media has been a long time goal,
beginning with a need to find a use for all the artifacts
(sometimes mistakenly referred to as 'junk') that I
collect, then as a wish to add dimension and further
purpose to my photographic work.
I followed through on these interests recently by taking
classes in Stained Glass and Mixed Media over the last
two years. Some of the results can be seen in this new
Some Project Details that might prove helpful.
1. 'Heritage' presents my family heritage of tailors,
seamstresses, and haberdashery.
2. 'Tribute to William S. Burroughs' includes visual
references to Burroughs' life (writing, recording, guns)
and the film Naked Lunch.
3. 'Tribute to Leonardo da Vinci' includes models of two
of his flying inventions and a three dimensional
representation of "The Last Supper'.
4. 'Tribute to Sun Ra' includes visual references to the
