Ivy Demos


My aesthetic and process is akin to that of the improvisational musician, a result of childhood jazz studies. Radiant with kinetic energy, the images are sublime yet challenging, often constructed of mixed media and found materials. Each piece is a kaleidoscopic storm of color, metallics and texture that appears to pause for your consideration.
