Having focused on my photographs and journal from Greece since my return, I am just now beginning to get back to some other art projects. I am continuing to concentrate on several collaborations, glimpses of which will no doubt make it into posts soon enough. I am also working on a number of individual projects, all of which you will hear about soon. But for now, I am back on board. Billboard that is. This is a book project rather loosely inspired by both the shape and the visuals of old, previously used billboards. Think layers of paper, text, numbers, and colors. These old billboards become abstract canvases which totally resonate with my love of things with a history, things distressed, things with layers, and things that have been changed by time. Below are images of my newest page with close-up shots and the first three pages that I had already posted in May. Click to enlarge for detail.
Ingredients: altered paper, ephemera, acrylic paint, dry transfer, pigment and dye ink, packing tape, altered photograph, electrical tape, sharpie, found builders tape, pen. 6 1/2" x 3 1/4".
