Helen Shafer Garcia profile picture

I think of my works as encounters with mostly organic fragments bound together with a twist that invokes the spirit for an intriguing visual journey. I want to pull in the viewer into my coffee stained world of interpretation that intertwines of legends, flora, fauna and icons. 

My process involves the transference, subtraction and addition of paint and decayed found objects, creating poetic relationships between organic and geometric shapes. Experimentation with random folklore themes and images juxtaposing with intriguing botanical shapes leads to deliberate sequestered yet unified shape arrangements. I want the impressions to be open for consideration.
