The Verity of Cross Pollination
I am a self-taught collage, mixed-media and assemblage artist who lives and creates in Pasadena, CA. I love the challenge of creating work that brings together the disparate and often discarded things of this world, be they images or objects, and creating a new and cohesive whole; giving them new life and meaning.
“The Verity of Cross-Pollination” is a metaphorical piece representing the basic principle that, from birth, we are, to a very large degree, formed and changed by outside forces. Nothing remains “pure” unto itself. Everyone and everything is affected by the things, events and people we come in contact with, and we are deeply changed by them. It was created using a vintage game board as the base and collaging reproduced images onto it.
