M. Carrington Arredondo
Mixed media collage artist in San Francisco, California, USA
I LOVE TYPE!
I have always been an artist and come from a graphic artist background.
My former pre-press cut+paste life has morphed into COLLAGE since 2006 after much art journaling.
Although I use mostly two-dimensional media, I prefer painting abstracts with paper.
I love letterforms, calligraphy, Japanese brushstrokes, hieroglyphs, ancient runes, and secret languages.
I grope to communicate by cutting and tearing materials to make bold shapes.
I rely on intuition and am not in control of the process.
A minimalist at heart, I present my work on simple deep canvas or wood panels, mostly unframed.
All my pictures are titled, signed and dated on back of the work.
