Collage With Staples
The upcoming June show at Las Manos Gallery will consist of myself and Michelle Peterson-Albandoz. Although I have not made final selections as to the contents of the show I will be including this piece. It is a collage/construction made of recycled cardboard, some of it colored with India ink, held together with staples. I'm attracted to the somewhat random structure of the finished piece when it is held together with something as flexible as a staple. It reminds me of what it is I respond to in art utilizing fabric and textiles. It also relates to some of my recent work around flags. It is large, 40x82 inches and the orientation is flexible.
