Marty Vinograd Mixed Media Collage

Virtual Open Studio!

Marty Vinograd, an Oxford, MS quilter, painter and mixed media collage artist was trained at the Corcoran Museum School in Washington, D.C. She later won a student show with her portrait of Golda Meir, which was purchased by an Israeli bank in D.C. and led to a commission for portraits of all of the Israeli prime ministers for the bank’s boardroom. Vinograd has shown all over the world with exhibitions in France, Costa Rica, New York, and New Orleans, and many others. Vinograd made her art and her home in Oxford, Mississippi.
The artist recalls, “Images of quilt making were imprinted in my nervous system – cutting, fitting, and pinning to see if it’s right, before gluing down… In some instances I cut without looking.  I move to the art piece and glue instantly, and it is ‘right.’  So inside my head, the image arises to claim its own.”
Working in this manner, she was able to ‘paint’ without paint.  The artistic challenge she faced was visualizing the likeness of her subject in her mind’s eye using string, feather, yarn, thread and snips of fabric, paper, leather, beads and any other material that would come in reach of her imagination.  Occasionally, the artist would incorporate the subject’s clothes, photos or memorabilia.
