Artist's description:

"Settlement # ", 2014, 11x14 inches, mixed media and collage on paper.

It has a black gallery-style wood 12x15 inches frame with non-glare gallery quality plexiglass. It is ready to hang. It is signed on the front with title and date.

"Settlement" is a series of three paintings. They can either stand alone or be presented as a series. In each painting there is a figure, in a simple composition, sitting and looking away from the viewer. They are positioned comfortably but they are “wrapped” in their thoughts, almost like a baby inside the womb. Tones and textures covering the figures are in contrast with their backgrounds. I used photos from the daily newspapers/magazines. These characters do not represent any personality but themselves.

I start my paintings with watercolor or ink and then add layers of dry media or collage. For this series, I preferred transparent layers like bubble wrap and tissue paper as well as opaque layers like fabric and wallpaper. These daily-life materials create an illusion of depth and reality. I also considered materials’ different textures, which brought some richness and movement to these simple compositions.
