“Connecting to the Ancestors”
Judith Sander‘s “Connecting to the Ancestors” was inspired by the poem “Inheritance” by Terri Thomas. Mixed media collage using papers, oil pastels, pencil and acrylic paint. 12”H x 24”W. As Judith Sander looks forward to searching her own family tree, she can imagine all the family portraits coming alive. For more information, visit JudithSander.com.
Artist Statement: I have been working in mixed media collage for many years. I love working figuratively with color, texture and pattern. Many objects become part of the image along with words. These words are removed and reworked in the process of painting with oil pastels and acrylic paints. Along with the narrative, women and animals are an important part of each piece.
