General, Particular Permanent, Passing Mixed Media works by Mandy Rogers Horton
The current work reflects on this kind of fabrication through collage and mixed media. The images collected from magazines serve as a vocabulary with which to negotiate desire, belief, and a search for understanding. The process of collage-- of culling, sorting, and composing with ready-made images-- parallels the process of composing both our physical lives and worldviews with pre-existing forms, language, and ideas.
