The Chico Art Center hosts this annual juried show, providing artists the ability to compete for the chance of winning an Award and a prize.
I combine religion, art, and found objects to create new collage assemblages that contrast several influences to create new ways of expression and insights. By layering together completely different objects and inspirations, creating my artwork enables me to use my accumulation of thrift store finds combined with life experiences. This is a new direction for my artwork, the addition of found objects and 3d elements. I think of my artwork as small slices of my catholic upbringing. This work, and my other collage assemblages, are all connected, and reflect struggles with my religion.
