'Personal Insight' by Mary DeLave
I work in layers of color and imagery and let the story unfold as I explore. Often a variety of mediums are used to create layers of texture to give physical depth to the multiple layers in my finished paintings. This painting has a bit of collage work in it with is mostly seen from the edges of the glued on paper. It was started with pieces of paper from a previous unfinished painting.
My paintings draw on the rich traditions of Surrealism and Expressionism with elements of Cubism. These styles use transmutation, exaggeration and fantasy to express feelings, dreams and unconscious thoughts. It is our nature to be multidimensional, so I like to depict multiple views in my work.
I like it when people are inspired by the Mystery and Magic in life through the images I create.
