I had originally constructed this piece about a year ago "without" a box. I've decided that it needs its own box (and glass cover)...and that direction became the new re-vision for this piece.
Photographing any work with "glass" is a tough job! I do my best, but it's always a struggle to get clarity.
A piece that I made a couple years ago for a "Day of the Dead" show at Cannibals Gallery has undergone a re-vision. It's the same small piece, in the same small black box...given new life in a larger glassed box with a few added details:
I've got several old assemblage pieces that I "didn't" toss away/deconstruct, etc., in my latest studio cleaning...this is one of them. This one from a few years ago, originally made in an old wooden salad bowl was "repackaged" the other day, being placed into an even larger bowl with a round glassed frame glued onto the top (by the way, those old wooden salad bowls, big or small, are great for assemblage work...they are available at almost any thrift shop). This piece needed to be enshrined under glass in such a way. It now invites the viewer to "come in" and take a much closer look.
