Sealed Book Series: Fox Bat Skull Book
Wrapped and tied in stained fabric and string. Rusted and wrapped, relics of a forgotten garage. These tools reflect a memory passed down from grandfather to grandson.
Assembled work, worn and tired tools, wrapped and tied. The tools served different purpose originally—however now it’s the functionality, the shape, and texture that drives the composition, and me to use them. This body of artwork draws on my memories, objects treated like relics, and surfaces are rusted and worn off. Like memories, holding on to them, wrapping them up to save.
I have added new cut and paste collages with a theme of Crows to Redbubble.com
This month I will be showing my assemblage “Our Father” in the Chasing Ghosts III show at Verum Ultimum, Portland Oregon. Opening reception on October 13 at 6pm, and you will be able to see 40 very talented artists!
.This artwork began with a collection images and found objects. Inspiration stems from an inner guidance, and intuition. I begin each piece with these in mind and hand, begin to add subtract, layer each piece, and bring together the artwork. Combining religion and found objects, I craft assemblages that contrast several influences to create new ways of expression.
Medium: mixed media assemblage
