Mixed media, collage painting on canvas composed of rice paper, fabric paper, acrylic, batik fabrics and handmade textured paper measures 16 x 20 inches. I mixed inks and acrylics with matte medium gel, applied this to the canvas surface and then adhered a transparent rice paper on top to add a textured look. This composition was inspired by the play of light on water. I love the feeling of suspension when submerged in water. So, I attempted to create the same feeling upon a canvas using an array of fabrics and papers which are essentially static elements but transformed into a flowing, moving unit when brought together and integrated.
