Selected sculptures or works on paper will be regularly
featured in this gallery. My intent is to acquaint the viewer with both
my 2-D and 3-D Art from the past, and the correlations between the
interlocking series that I have created. The sustaining and
unifying link is humankind - the who, what, when, where, and how of our
being. Our postures and gestures - our non-verbal dialogue - our body's
"voices" are the nuclei of my figurative works. "The Great Anniversary"
measuring 45" x 36" x 3" is a collage created with small
pencil drawings and a variety of fiber papers. The sun and sea
worshipers, cut out and assembled, compose the scene of a crowded beach
on the fourth of July. The aerial view is complete with raised umbrellas
and flags. I created this collage in 1987 to honor my parents, Louis and
Carme Scavotto and their festive holiday anniversary. My childhood
obsession with drawing and cutting my own paper dolls is indeed
ancestral to this collage!
