Maria Rendon is the artist behind the brightly colored collage in the picture above. Although the style is consistent with her other work, this piece stood out. Drawing my attention as soon as I entered the gallery. While most appricated the size and color, this piece setting the stage for the whole gallery, I saw more. To me the piece resembles a clogged artery, perhaps a dying heart. The pure red showing life, and the painful yellow suffocating it. Although Maria Rendon was not present to discuss her personal meaning, meaning still existed to many of my classmates who obersved the piece.
