I recently started creating shadow boxes that feature my "rearrangements," and I've had fun incorporating collage into the pieces. I wanted to experiment with collage to get ideas for the shadow boxes and to create a range of styles, so I began to get a little playful and am making some stand-alone pieces. What started as an exercise has turned into something bigger. I will use what I'm teaching myself in future rearrangements, but I will also continue to collage separately from the sculptures. By the time SF Open Studios rolls around (October/November), I expect to have two discrete and substantial bodies of work, and perhaps a third: a hybrid of the two media.
I have quite the collection of old rustic frames, and I think now is the time to fill them.
More images soon.
