Like a miniature art gallery, Ira's collages are a multi-dimensional and colorful melange of recycled treasures. The mixed media pieces incorporate original work, found objects and recycled materials. The result is a visual explosion of imagery and forms.
Viewers are engaged by a wide range of media and subject matter. At first look, a piece may appear quite bejeweled, but closer inspection reveals items from the everyday world transformed by Ira's creativity and vision. By focusing on the mundane, each work implies a secret message.
