About Virginia


These mandalas are intricately crafted, large scaled works that reference painting, but are created by collaging pieces of detritus from a consumerist society in a way that exposes the efforts of advertisers to influence the masses. The resulting works, each crafted from thousands of pieces of used plastic bags imprinted with familiar logos and slogans can be both humorous and unnerving. These large ebullient mandalas are a manic explosion of consumerist excess that contain and brand our passions while attesting to our belief in the American Dream.

A woman after my own heart! Not only is the piece itself visually stimulating, the message of is one that cannot be repeated enough. If you don't get it, then you're part of the problem.

Clever, innovative and really astounding work! I really enjoyed looking at your work on your site and I also like your views as well.

It's like modern mandalas! I absolutely love it! Definitely something I would enjoy owning in my home/ office to appreciate every day.
