This collage/painting is proudly hanging in my solo show at the Gallery of the Lorelton (Wilmington DE, USA)
April 1-30, 2009

Collage Art is unique because you take already existing materials to design your own piece of art.
All you need is an open mind and the willingness to explore.
I love working with traditional methods and materials in a total unexpected way.

I used different kind of paper, newspaper, acrylic paint, ink and pencil. I wanted to give this Collage/Painting an old look by painting the music sheets and background with raw sienna, which give the collage this antique feel.
Purposely I was leaving some light areas to provide the eye to travel throughout the piece.

For “Sonata for Piano and Violin” I was influenced by my musical background and by a strong sense of color (earth tones)

After I almost finished this collage/painting I glued the canvas board on a larger canvas, to incorporate the piece and to give it the desired depth.

<small>Size middle canvas board: 20"X24".
Size stretched canvas 24″×30″ (61.03×76.2 cm) with gallery wrapped edges over wooden frame.
