Dick Allowatt Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement Most of my life has been devoted to making art, with nearly 40 years as a graphic designer and creative director.
For the past several years, I have been creating mixed media artwork. Working with my collection of found objects and vintage books, I discover relationships for incongruent materials and images. I bring these elements together to evoke mystery, fantasy, humor, or to simply create a pleasing arrangement with no hidden meaning, preferring to leave the interpretation of the results up to the viewer. For me, the thrill is in the unpredictable journey and the surprise destination.
