Independence

Making collage takes me back to my teenage years when I used to cut and paste creations on envelopes to letters I'd send in the mail. 

In recent years, I've been involved with Collage-a-Rama--a group of Bay Area artists meeting monthly for collage-making sessions at Arc Gallery. Collage-making is an art form that can go so many directions, and the artworks take on the personalities of the artists who make them.

This piece represents independence to me on a few levels: spending time at "Lake Independence" growing up, breaking free from religious bonds and the closet while coming out, and deciding to leave my established career to make art. The squeak toy dinosaur in the center of the collage was one of the first things I painted as an artist, featured in dozens of paintings.

Rocket overall size is approximately 21.6 x 8.5 x 1 inches.

Acrylic on plywood cutout. 

Ready to hang.
