My name is Kerri Mulcare. I am a collage and mixed media artist living and working in Minneapolis, MN. In my works on paper, I often mix fragments of found and vintage images with paint, ink and touches of embroidery. My aesthetic and conceptual approach is largely influenced by fleeting moments, the natural world, the fluidity of memory, loss, the subconscious, and dreams.
In my ongoing series, Lost & Found, I alter found and antique photographs through the use of embroidery, collage and paint. I add illustrations of neon painted ghosts over people that are in the photographs. In others, I replace people’s faces with images of nature or collage colored images over the already present black and white landscapes.
This series, as well as some recent collages, are explorations of memory and the loss of personal histories, in addition to the moments we choose to preserve through photography and imagery. It is also an examination of the transition of materials from lost objects, into found and repurposed ones, with new histories of their own.
