Mixed Media

Star Trauth—Artist

Detail, Head Full of Forgotten Things, 2019. Ontological Museum, Permanent Collection


Mixed Media was where I really started to experiment in making my own media and marrying it with other objects of curiosity.

The freedom to work with whatever I wanted in whatever way I wanted to actually focused me.

I began to envision art pieces that were made wholly of my own materials.

This required a lot of trial and error. I never considered any of it failure, just the learning process to getting new works from my head to the canvas, so to speak.
