Patricia Chapman

The objects I use in my mixed media assemblage art are rich with the patina of prior history and dripping with symbolic potential. These castoffs, remnants and oddities play starring roles in my art, along with the frequent use of text and a large measure of humor. Mining the metaphorical possibilities of found objects allows me to explore the nature of the human experience in all its comic and tragic glory. There is a narrative aspect to my art with themes and imagery that the viewer can relate to in very personal terms, making these stories their own.

Individual images are available upon request.
