Convergence - Mixed Media prints by Adabel Allen
Bosque at Eventide
24 x 18"
Monotype, Etching, and Gravure
Adabel Allen’s colorful mixed media prints are inspired by the fact that disparate disciplines such as science and religion often come to similar conclusions. While she physically layers intaglio and relief plates to echo the layers of meaning embedded in her work she uses bird imagery as a unifying element. A metaphor for the multiple perspectives we can use to observe the world, the birds in Allen’s work also add a sense of humor to her otherwise rather thoughtful pieces.
