Haley Litzingers’ collages portray urban landscapes often scattered with dilapidated buildings, machinery, bridges, mountains, and human figures. The dark earth tones and images are embedded into the layered clear epoxy resin portray a multi dimensional forbidding and almost fantasy atmosphere. The works are moody but intriguing; the artist does not hesitate to portray uneasiness.
“I use a method of layering resin, drawings, found images, and various paints to create encapsulated three dimensional landscapes and scenes. The depth produced by the multiple layers of resin gives a "Cast block" feel to the collage, initiating engagement and creating a sensorial experience. The process of experimentation with materials, color, technique and composition is central when beginning a piece. I begin to have a constant, multi-dimensional process of self-exploration, self-reflection and learning. By arranging various images and manipulating their size, color, texture, position and relationship, I discover subjective new perceptions stimulated by the development of conscious and unconscious insight…” Haley Litzinger.
