Cassandra Tondro, "Checkered Past," heart collage

"Checkered Past," original collage, 14" x 11"

$175.00

We all have a bit of a checkered past -- things we'd prefer to keep hidden. It's time for us to forgive ourselves for our transgressions and love ourselves despite our flaws, or even because of them.

During the coronavirus pandemic, I felt the need to create a series of heart collages to bring love and light to the world.  The heart is a shape that symbolizes love, but not necessarily the romantic love of Valentine's Day. These heart pieces depict universal love -- love for oneself, life, all beings and the planet. They're here to help usher in a new world that I hope will be based on oneness and love rather than separation and fear.

This collage was made by layering images and text cut from magazines. I use the cut pieces to make abstract designs that document my observations and feelings.

Sustainability is an important part of my artistic practice, and each one-of-a-kind collage is created using images and text cut from discarded magazines. I also incorporate other mediums including enamel paint, tulle netting, colored pencil and graphite.
