“Music” (drawing on paper, 2017) by Maria Santacecilia

“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 DayMaria Santacecilia, and as a musician, it spoke to me.  Then I saw the buttons, those things that hold everything together. Lovely.
