Carrington Arredondo

I'm a San Francisco mixed media artist & former graphic designer. My prepress cut+paste life evolved into bookbinding & paper collage.

I now paint abstract compositions using collage & typography as under layers. Building up layers, then sanding down through acrylic paint reveals symbols, words & secrets. I like to finish with primitive mark-making.

Unconcerned with making beautiful things, I rely on intuition to produce bold shapes, texture & contrast. Perfection is not my friend. If unsatisfied with results, I will destroy my work as easily as create it & begin again.

My work does not reflect or document anything to do with the pandemic era. I am not influenced by current events, nor do I choose themes that may date the work.
