in the studio: 'fragments'

'fragments'      Barbara De Pirro

Printmaking and collage are two techniques used in my current paintings. No found papers are used. I hand paint, block print, collograph & monotype textures & patterns onto the surface of both opaque and translucent papers, cutting and embedding imagery into multiple, transparent layers of acrylic. Achieving an effect very much like wax encaustic or fused glass.
Looking into my paintings is much like peering into a pool of water.
