Artist Profile

Michael Toti

Medium: Mixed media collage

Description:  Mixed media and paper collage, using watercolor, pastels, inks and paints.

Color, texture, pattern and illusion of depth all play a part in my current work. I am using watercolor more and more to create the backgrounds and stamping patterns into the wet pigment. I am also exploring different themes, some use cigar box women, while others use typewriters adding machines, appliances, tvs and cameras for heads. I am always striving for some interaction between the elements in the composition, whether it is an imaginary dialog or story or a play off of the forms. I always hope that the viewer is part of the mix and sees something in the story beyond my original intent.
