My answer is Yes, of course!. Even in the same painting. Though many prefer one category over the other, I enjoy works that mix metaphors. My most recent painting, Ambassador for Human Diversity, is a case in point. Just curated into the Annual International Representational Exhibition at the Federation Gallery this September-October, it is my pop-futuristic tribute to human and artistic diversity.
I hope you enjoy these columns about art, ideas and travel adventures. I write them from my perspective as a a mixed-media artist and creative life writer with diverse cultural interests. -- Janet Strayer
