Merging Heart and Soul - Collage artists' painting inspirations

merging-heart-and-soul.jpg

Using mixed media materials to create my collage art allows me to express feelings and how I seek to interact artwork with greater ideas of our existence.

Collage artists have the unique opportunity to use various materials to create their vision and statement on canvas. I limit myself to a handful of items that I like to incorporate into each mixed media collage. These include but are not limited to string, acrylic paint, twine, and paper.

“Merging Heart and Soul” is a blend of blue hearts and one pink heart amongst the blue spiral representing our soul.  The hearts appear to be drawn in by the soul because that is where they need to be. The heart and soul need to be together as one.  Why? It is the same as trying to separate the body from the mind. It can not be done. This painting gives permission for the heart and soul to combine.

I hope you enjoyed reading about the inspiration behind my collage art piece!
