Lemonade in Barcelona
This collage is my expression of celebrating one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Barcelona. My original photography always lends a great base for my artwork, so I chose this interesting shot with it’s meandering depth of field drawing the viewer in towards the brilliant sunset. The rearranged reality with this assembled moment in the foreground, communicates the energy and beauty that emerges over time with the stacks of repurposed, vintage magazines that I breathe new life into. The American Girl magazine cover that was used for bits and pieces of this was originally delivered to a Girls Scout that lived on Meadowbrook in Cleveland Hts in November, 1945... it ends up a few streets away and into my studio for liberation to life anew.
