Gallery owner Ida Victoria says, "I am very excited for this show! Trisha Oldfield has not been in the gallery for long, but in the short time that she has been, she has gained a following and her work sells quickly. Her collages are SO Mexico and perfect for our gallery- her pieces are colorful, edgy, whimsical but sophisticated & truly unique. Her love of Mexico and it's constant inspiration for her is evident, and technically I am amazed by her ability to combine such a wide variety of mediums so seamlessly to create these fantastic little worlds. Trisha and her work are a great addition to our gallery, proud to have her work here! I hope you join us to celebrate this new series next Thursday night and to meet Trisha. Look forward to seeing you!”
Trisha writes, “I have fallen in deep inspiration with the rich culture I’ve observed in Mexico for the past 15 years. The colors, the patterns, the people and their personalities and traditions and most of all, the diverse natural landscapes. This inspiration has resulted in a series I have been having a love affair with called “Colorful Life”. This series has thrown me into the arms of a medium called mixed media collage and I will never look back. I love collage because of its spontaneous, forgiving and narrative nature. It is therapeutic. I feel I can express myself better with this medium more than I can with just a paintbrush or with just a camera. It not only opens a world of impossible associations but can harmoniously link thoughts, styles and even artistic technique used throughout history. It breathes new life into old discarded forgotten art that should be appreciated and admired.”
Trisha Oldfield is an emerging multi-media collage artist. Her work possesses a distinctive contemporary style – a result of her strong background and experience in graphic design and commercial illustration. Her collages are composed of custom & vintage photographs and illustrations, acrylic paint, pouring mediums, specialty papers and wood - all orchestrated together into detailed and whimsical compositions.
