Artist Statement

Modern interpretations of the Classical by artist Cheryl Alagich Series titled-Flight of the Soul (showing 4 of 37 pieces for sale) The Process In this series, the images are based on masterpieces from ancient, Renaissance and Baroque art. I captured these images while traveling throughout Italy. They have been inspired by the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and ancient Greek and Roman art. These images are reinterpreted through the use of mixed media. This modern process links the past with the present. Each piece has its own visual and emotional symbolism; therefore, my selection of different media my vary. In this series, I have combined photographs, drawings, sculpture, photographic toners, watercolors, oil paints, pastels, charcoal, photographic pencils, plaster and applied objects. In some pieces, mirrors are used in the background-allowing the viewer to participate and become part of the art. All manipulation is done in the studio. There is no computer or digital manipulation. Whenever possible, I try to retain the old master and aged appearance by using antique deteriorated frames. I begin with the frame and build the pieces inside them. In most cases painting or adding objects or allowing the piece to flow onto the frame, therefore the frames are part of the artwork.

I have always been fascinated by history and love to travel to ...   Read More
