Terie Christmas

Assemblage & Mixed Media Artist as well as a Photographer/Digital Artist

 

Assemblage work is a 3D medium using rusted, neglected or vintage items to make a cohesive art piece. It allows me to express myself, through my love of rusted and eroded items, in a more tactile way.

 

You will also see pieces of nature including bones which is usually found in my work.

Mixed Media includes my love for assemblage work but incorporates papers, textiles

 

My purpose as a photographer to to find beauty in the often discarded and abandoned places or items and present that to the viewer through my “wabi sabi” eyes.

 

I use textures and layers to achieve the final results in some of my photography work. I also do photographic collage work using a portrait and layering in photos and memorabilia to show a snap shot of a person’s life or specific accomplishment.
