Yeah, I decided I needed to describe my creations with a little more detail than just “mixed media” art. Since many of the materials I use are from the hardware section vs. the art supply area I settled on the industrial title.
These are some images of recent work, in addition to concrete and wood I’ve been exploring imbedding and attaching objects. Does the image above look like it’s got straws sticking out of it? Actually, it does…they are blocking the concrete from filling holes that were drilled into the wood. The pieces below have (top to bottom) glass, metal wire and paper in them.
Since the time I took these photos I’ve sealed each piece and added a few layers of acrylic paint/ink. There will be several more of those before they are finished! I will post more images as the pieces progress. In the meantime I’ve got several posts to share with you about recent classes and some of the great art that the participants created.
