"Though I started my art career as a photographer, over the years I've realized that I'm most fulfilled working as a mixed media/assemblage artist. By combining a variety of materials and textures, I experience a creative satisfaction that I have yet to find in any one medium alone.
Found objects are what I use to create my assemblage pieces. Most of the items are repurposed and have a history I know nothing about. Who did the object belong to and what did it mean to its owner? Was it an every day, common item or something for special occasions? By creating art with these objects I am able to tell a visual story about a situation from every day life that may have become obsolete, a relic of times past. In telling my story I hope to inspire the viewers of my art to find their own story and experience of nostalgia."
Rosemarie Hughes' art will be on display at Cafe 1923 in Hamtramck through the end of December.
