About ANGELA

Anne Arundel County

ANGELA PETRUNCIO's picture
I am a found object assemblage artist. I have been doing this since 2007. I was initially a photographer, achieving my Bachelor's in Fine Art at The University of New Mexico. Always enjoying multiple techniques and mediums, I find assemblage and collage the perfect discipline for my artistic expression. My work speaks quietly through symbolism and suggestion. I am currently Chair of MD Federation of Art's Bi Annual National Exhibit Eye of The Beholder: The Fine Art of The Found Object.

Spiritual Suggestion

These pieces allude to faith and devotion

  • The Bishop's Obsession

    A open backed box frame. Pearls on edge refer to clerical cassock of a bishop. The front includes a statue head, dried roses, lace and excelsior packing material. Verso(not shown)refers to the more worldly interests of the bishop, including a golf ball and jewelry.
  • The Offering

  • The Inner Workings of The Universe

    Box 6X6X2 inches Includes watch and clock parts, imagery, jewelry parts, blocks, beads. The vastness of the Universe is impossible to comprehend. In our feeble attempt to make sense of it, we use all sorts of approaches from math and science to religion.
  • Covenant

And A Little Child Shall Lead Them

Children point the way to redemption before they become polluted by bad influences. The innocence of a child is precious.

  • Of Reach of Children: A Cautionary Tale

    Wood box 3 X 3 X 2 inches "A Cautionary Tale" from warnings ("Keep out of reach of children")on various items and substances. The effort to protect children is feeble at best. The "reach" of children is a mystery.

Vincent's Muse

A tribute to Vincent Van Gogh was an early goal of mine. I love his work and am fascinated by his life.

  • Vincent's Muse

    Wooden box 6.5 X 6.5 X 2 inches with glass front Includes tree bark knothole, acorn, figurine, pot shard, miniature pitcher, imagery. The tragic life of Van Gogh haunts me. He referred to himself as a "broken pitcher". I have attempted to evoke a Dutch interior here, with a broken pitcher on a shelf. There is beauty in the brokenness.
