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 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.
I am pleased to announce that both of the pieces, Voices Unheard and Civil Discourse – 2016 that I submitted were selected as finalists in the juried ArtScene Today Competition : Mad, Mad, World and can be viewed at artscenetoday.com.
Every now and then I feel the urge to do something disturbingly outside my comfort zone. So I watched some political talk shows and the result was “Civil Discourse: 2016” — a reflection on what I observed. “Civil Discourse: 2016” is a found object/recycled material paper collage using FSPs. Matted and framed to 16” x 20”.
The 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
Political Theory: 101 is a found object/recycled material paper collage which I believe speaks for itself and probably says just about everything you really need to know about political theory regardless of your party affiliation or other views on government. Matted and framed to 20′ x 16″. $175.
Impressions of Pittsburgh is a found object/recycled material paper collage that attempts to snapshot a recent visit. While I was born and raised 20 miles north of Pittsburgh, I had not really been back in almost 50 years, and it was terra incognita to me – fascinating but, now, unknown. 11″ x 14′ $175
