I Need to Make Things Even if Nobody Cares

Hang Around Awhile

  • May 19, 2019

I wanted to try combining parts of my plaster and wax process along with an assemblage-style piece. This is the result.

The outer frame is the interior of an art canvas. Sans canvas. The postcard is from a vintage collection I inherited (soooo NOT PC!) and initially was going to scan but felt it just needed the original. Other elements include found metal objects, nails, remnant of repousse metal, plaster, text transfers, acrylic paint and wax.

Maker of Things

The little details, the subtle nuance.
How we feel, what we see and smell and hear.
The distant call of a crow.
The feel of the Spring sun on our face as we emerge from the dark, cold winter.
These are the experiences and layers that interest me.

Because everything is connected to everything.

Our stories may be different but why we tell them is the same.
To feel connected and loved.
To be heard.

Through layers of wax and plaster, paint and photographs.
With rusty nails and found objects and wire.
These are my stories.
