Gina Falcone Skelton introduces an exhibition of new work created in 2014 – 15. The process that began as collage led to a new medium for the painter whose previous works are oil on canvas. As literal content was weeded out of her imagery, so were the visible signs of assemblage. She stopped thinking of new pieces as collage because, she says, “I had stumbled back into painting. The only difference was trading oil paint and brushes for paper torn with my hands.”
