Barbara Slitkin — Painting, Sculpture, Mixed Media

Artists can set wheels in motion for social change and new thinking. Was there ever a better time than now? Words can separate friends, break hearts, shake foundations, destroy a united country. Whistle blowers take risk, social media is a collage of funny characters who populate our lives and share experiences.
The mouth and tongue open into new adaptations for painting, and ceramic sculpture. Using paint, and mix-media collage I present words and imagery to express feelings about living in our complex world, with new and ongoing challenges. With face masks now covering our mouths it is ironic that the imagery is focused on that orifice in this collection.
My work is purposely funky, it is about being a little wacky. Seeing the fun, and being creative.
