Arabesque  
(Collection of Private Collector)

Collage / 2003

36 x 24"

This collage utilizes a more neutral palette of contemporary papers to explore concepts of compositional flow and balance.

The collage was conceived as an abstract, rather than a figurative work, although the title that struck me upon its completion refers to a ballet position... My daughter is a ballet dancer, so the terminology came readily to mind! It indicates a moment of outstretched limbs and poised stillness, while balanced on one foot.

This collage was included in the All Colorado Art Show at the Curtis Center for the Arts in Greenwood Village, Colorado.
