I do like the idea of including found object in art work Seth - there is so much beauty to be picked up on the ground - I collect feathers and try to incorporate them in my textiles - a friend has such an eye for collecting that she sees the most beautiful stones, pieces of flint, fossils etc. Speaking of found objects a huge load of anglo saxon gold found in Staffordshire has just gone on show here in the UK - what an exciting find that would have been!

My daughter would love that, all the rusty things in there- wonderful!
She found some rusty things in the fields near our house, all guarding them in her treasurebox now. Children are great finder.

As a fellow collector, I covet your rusty metal stuff-- and of course the Asian symbols.

Bea said...

Don't you feel like a little kid on an Easter egg hunt when you find a "found object"? I grin and carry on and my family understands. :)Bea

This one is so rich and exotic ..... and of course it has sold already!

Lynn said...

I love these rusty parts you find.

Candace said...

Fantastic! I too am using more "found" objects... it's amazing what's out there just waiting for us to love it and turn it into something other than a throwaway, isn't it?

LOVE the colours in this, they speak very clearly to me.
Take care,
Candace in Athens.

The textures are overwhelming! And that's good. Really good. Love the shellac and rusty things.

Studio Sylvia said...

Wonderful compilation of textures, colours and objects, Seth. The background text adds that something extra. Way to go!

azirca said...

oooh rusty bits! you have made them fit right in with the Eastern theme of the piece.
If you are anything like me you'll have 'sourced' those rusty found elements from the pavement!

Beautiful image filled with depth, vibrant color, and layer upon layer of thought. Love collage with lever cut outs, collage, hidden letters and backgrounds to make the perfect setting for your jewels to shine.

Lisa Sarsfield said...

Lovely work Seth. I love circles and found things and the pallete you've used...so this really appeals!

Are you blogging for international blog action day on October 15th?

I love the vertical lines with the round shapes; and of course the depth of the layers. So much to look at! This is just gorgeous.

Seth, you have an amazing talent for creating small pieces that have such a large presence...i was surprised to see the size on this work. the details make it appear much larger than life.
