Mixed media collage of acrylic painted papers and up cycled newspapers treated with acrylic gloss medium

This work is part of a continual explorative expression of a series started in 2011 . It is a hybrid of geometric and calligraphic references mostly inspired by how we assimilate and reinterpret information mediated through newspapers and the media. Newspaper texts have been cut-up , fragmented and reconstructed into a "synthetic Collage" that has been meticulously assembled to create a work of infinite beauty, subtlety and delicacy .
