Collage adds life

An example of the development of a collage image by artist GA Gardner. The development always start with the fundamentals--painting and drawing. Mixed media elements are added after the lighting directions and form are determined. The mixed media collage adds life and energy to the piece.

GA Gardner Inspired by Diamonds

I had an opportunity to see the Andy Warhol exhibition "The Last Decade" at the Baltimore Museum of Art with a friend and curator. It was a wonderful experience to see a show with a museum curator, especially this show. I learned a great deal by his analysis of the art. The work was inspiring. I was particularly impressed with the use of diamonds in couple of Warhol's paintings and the pieces where he collaborated with Jean-Michel Basquiat. This exhibition ends soon, so if you have a chance it's worth a visit.
