ADD: "New Work" features abstract collages that bring together many familiar and odd media on one surface. Color transparencies and color Xerox are mixed with paint and fabric and then encapsulated in a frame that echoes the shape of the finished work. Some recognizable imagery of lips and red balls is camouflaged within a jungle of color and texture. Ask the artist, "What is this work about?," and the answer is imprecise. However, the act of creating these intricate and specialized pieces produces a look-or a system-that is itself the subject and content.
