Joyce B. Flora's Cathedral Series, her most recent, consists of 3-dimensional abstract collages/assemblages constructed from a wide range of materials: paper, metals, clay, wood, found materials, paint. Inspired by religious architecture and primitive art, Flora is also influenced by her travels to distant parts of the globe, especially Africa and the Middle East, which enabled her to observe firsthand the inexhaustible richness and diversity of various cultures. Continuing to draw upon these enriching experiences and her extensive training in the performing arts‹in particular ballet and modern dance‹she developed a keen awareness and appreciation for form and line, which are vital elements in her art.
