I am moved by the simple visual patterns found in both nature and the manmade world—from cracks in the sidewalk, or a spider’s fragile web illuminated in the morning dew, to the weird formations that ropey lava winds itself into. These lines, textures and colors that I see around me every day provide impetus for my abstract collages. Using paper from many sources—a time-worn, yellowed page from an old book, for example, or some bright photographic image, I decontextualize and arrange the elements, often alongside self-made marks, into a new composition. I am essentially a curator of disparate elements, searching for a state of balance and harmony. And as such, the challenge is as much about seeing as doing. Art is a way for me to express my delight at the visual world, and equally, my way of making sense out of chaos. For more visit angelahollandart.com

I have had a paintbrush in my hand since I can remember. In 2002 I graduated from Hampshire Collage with a BA in fine arts, (specifically oil painting) as well as a specializing in special education.

Mitra Cline (me!)
Is my art great? I can speak to how my art has impacted my life and how other great art has impacted me. My blog, Mitra’s Art Diary, is a record of my journey as an artist. I share with the intention that it inspires others to share creative work too. Awareness of how art impacts human behavior one person to the next is critical because human actions have human consequences. Consequences like self-destructive behavior and planet-endangering climate change, pollution, and war. Human actions ripple out into the universe with unknown galactic impact.
