THE GREEN MAN: WINTER

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

THE GREEN MAN: WINTER, the second in my “Seasonal Green Man” Series, like THE GREEN MAN: AUTUMN is a paper collage using paper that I specifically hand inked and hand pulled, this time to reflect the colors of winter – white, gray, blue and black. So while the primary and secondary contours of the image remain the same, the seasons have changed. Matted and Framed to 14” x 18”.

THE GREEN MAN: AUTUMN

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

THE GREEN MAN: AUTUMN marks my return to a favorite topic: the folklore, legends and mythology of the “Green Man”, something I’ve explored in a number of different mediums. This time the medium is paper collage using paper that I hand inked and hand pulled specifically for this piece. Mounted on mat board and matted and framed to 18”x 14”, THE GREEN MAN: AUTUMN is the first on an intended four part “seasonal” series.

The Pointillist

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2015The Pointillist is a mixed media collage which uses found object/ recycled materials and paint on canvas to convey…nothing. His expression is blank, he reveals no emotions or inner thoughts, perhaps because he is composed of Financial Security Papers (FSPs), the inside patterns of bank, bill and credit envelopes, whose sole purpose is to prevent you from seeing inside. 22″ x 18″ $350
