ARTIST of the DAY: Maria Santacecilia
Find a common thread in the work of fragmentation
“I build my works with a sense of fragmentation . . . a metaphor of daily life.” —Maria Santacecilia
I have buttons from everywhere. I have collected them for no reason for years and years. And just yesterday, I met an artist yesterday that makes button bracelets as a fundraising source for a non-profit that provides showers and laundry facilities for homeless women. Today, I came across this drawing by today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Maria Santacecilia, and as a musician, it spoke to me. Then I saw the buttons, those things that hold everything together. Lovely.
