Ann Calandro - Artist Statement

My medium is mixed media collage, and it is composed of paper, paint, pastel, colored pencil, fabric, ink, photographs that I take with a Canon Rebel, and small objects. My subject is generally, although not always, urban landscapes or some kind of interior or exterior gathering--a family scene, an artist's studio, a person looking through a car window at a child who may be a memory or a dream or a real child. I call my style "enchanted reality," because I look upon it as the intersection of what is real and what is not, or where the possible meets the impossible.
