Mixed Media-Ripped and Torn Series

Well gentle readers,
I am working diligently in the studio...
daily to tie up loose ends..

Holiday Cards with Vintage stamps.. Caterina Giglio

meet deadlines and get a handle on my work..

Caterina Giglio, Two Sides of the Same Story, Mixed Media on cradled board

before we leave for our
European tour..

That means that I need to have my
holiday cards made and ready to post..

so I have been working on those..

Caterina Giglio, Mixed Media, detail, Settling Old Debts.

and working on my 
Ripped and Torn Series

Which will debut this May..

in Colorado
at 142 Bis Gallerie..

I have learned so much about mixed media..
and paper with this new collection..

Magnolia seed pod and fall leaves..

and while I have signed all the new pieces, 
they still need to be sealed..

and I will work on that when I return..

This collection was birthed in relationship
Ripping papers to shreds and the ties that bind...
I found release in rearranging and story telling in 
different ways..
manipulating the paper to move to my narrative..

Caterina Giglio, The Days are Numbered, Mixed Media on Paper.

Thanks for all your concern about hurricane Michael,
we are fine and it seems to be headed west of us..

so I will be back in the studio this week and 
preparing for a new video on
Composition for Mixed Media..

Hope to see you then,

It's good to know you are probably going to miss Michael. And your latest collages are wonderful. I like the analogy you used to find release in ripping and tearing. They are certainly impressive.
