Here is a little bit about Jamie:
"Jamie Kovács is a passionate collage and mixed media artist, originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Inspired by her love of pop icons and the unique beauty she sees in everything, her highly textural abstract works often evoke the iconic joy brought to us by the cinema or musicians and sometimes just nature in general. Kovács has concentrated on pop art through collage. Her collages explore a unique technique of using hand ripped magazine paper and glue. . I absolutely love music and movies and comic books and well; anything geeky, so a lot of these pieces are based on musicians, actors, and iconic people. I continue to build my portfolio by working as large as I can and for as long as I can do it. I am constantly evolving these collages into different styles. Just recently my new style involves 3-D collage, which involves sculpting Styrofoam, and hand ripped recycled magazine paper. It is powerful at smaller sizes but when you get them really big, they will knock your socks off. As Jamie moves
away from Iconic images, she is transcending into a more mystical realm including more sculpture and 3D pieces. She is the Andy Warhol of Collages. Her collages explore themes such as the symbolism and the significance of life and different belief systems. Her large-scale abstract works often include recycled reminders of her love and interests in bits of paper, or eco-friendly / organic materials such as feathers. Manipulating the texture with many layers of paint, she will work and re-work
her canvases, layering, scraping, piling up textures to give added dimension, creating works that intrigue and invite the viewer in for closer inspection."
