First in my new “Water Signs” series of digital photo collages. 20 x 16″, on White Aluminum Composite – “Water Signs – Laguna Woods”

My digital “painting” was created using iPhoneography – photos taken with my iPhone of condos and golf course, a street sign and water utility street cover in Laguna Woods. These photos were then collaged into a cohesive statement using several layers of photos and colors in the Procreate app.

“Water: A Necessary Conversation” brings together contemporary art and past posters focused on water as a vital and limited resource. It includes abstract and representational artworks by 20 contemporary artists working in an array of media from painting, prints, video to photography. Curated by art historian Susan M. King, the selection of works strikes a dialogue between past and present art meant as a social lever around water issues.

The exhibition is  organized by the Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art as an Art as Activism project with assistance from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics.
