In her Tuscany Series, the process begins with applying multiple layers of pigment. Like an archaeologist, she excavates the different stratum with metal tools. Unearthing is an act of courage causing upheaval as one gets past the superficial. In this work she collages retazos or remnants from other paintings. In the ever flux of change she gives new life to these fragments. These subtle paintings may suggest landscapes, in many ways they are imagined places marking a constructed past.
Feliciano is an Adjunct Professor at Florida International University’s Art + Art History program and a committee member of the Dade Art Educators Association. Her works have been presented in solo exhibitions nationally and also included in notable exhibitions such as 100+ degrees in the Shade, 30th Anniversary, and MADMiami.
