Mixed Media Collages
Denise is our 2017 ArtWalk artist. She is a West Michigan artist and high school counselor. Denise creates collages using found paper objects such as antique sheet music, atlases, and books. Often, she applies a photo transparency over the collage and then, paints over those layers allowing you to see or hide different components of the canvas. This artist focuses on an idea such as belonging, forgiveness, mortality, or love. Her goal is to create a connection between people and her art with shared experiences. All of Denise’s work is personal, a combination of the ordinary and the profound. Like a soft kiss on the forehead for no reason.
We will begin our Artist Talk with Denise at 7:30 on Friday, October 6, 2017.
