Objects of Curiosity
“Objects of Curiosity,” is a mixed media series of paintings and assemblage art on wrapped canvas using a variety of materials including acrylic paint, gel medium, metallic powder, glass fragments, mica shavings, embossing foil, sand, feathers, wood, yarn, resin, craft paper, tissue paper, and found objects. Reminiscent of the idea that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, this series uses a lot of recycled and repurposed items. The entire canvas is wrapped in scrunched and pulled tissue paper, heavy craft paper, and paint to create the first layers of texture. Each subsequent layer is made of a variety of materials including found objects and foraged items combined to stir interest and curiosity.
