Oil and Collage on Paper

Joyce Mansfield draws artistic inspiration from her faith in God and her experiences with friends and family.  Bahama Mama is based on sketches of a picturesque waterfront vendor in Nassau. 

Mansfield’s collage technique involves assembling and pasting materials.  Similar to artist Al Loving, whose artwork is displayed right next to Mansfield’s, Joyce constructs her collages from pieces of brightly colored, painted paper.  But while Loving's piece is formed and glued to resemble a relief sculpture, Manfield's fragments are affixed to a solid ground, creating the effect of a traditional painting.
