Common Denominator………..
a series of collage paintings by Mary Beth Shaw

the artist says about her work, "I work with forgotten and discarded family photographs. The faces speak to me and I lose myself in imagined memories. Gathering materials from various sources, favoring antique ephemera and other unusual imagery and text, I collage and paint a layered story merging past and present. I often add a written “caption” for the viewer to contemplate - a phrase from my collection of vintage materials, something remembered from my childhood, or perhaps my own personal commentary. I have found that it doesn’t matter who is pictured; we are all so much the same."

In addition to her original collage paintings, Mary Beth will offer reproductions, greeting cards and other hand painted gift items.
