|Remnants no. 003|
mixed media collage
I am really intrigued with the hydrocal (plaster).
It is enabling me to get some more dimension out of the 2D surface.
As I work I am making each piece a bit larger by extending the wire mesh and the area where the hydrocal will go.
Leaving some of the mesh show is intentional and adds to the aged, found, neglected aspect of the work.
I hope that the viewer finds plenty of room for individual interpretation of the materials and the objects used.
I have given a lot of thought to titling these with more information, but like the anonymity of the word and title "Remnants". Upon checking the dictionary I see that a remnant is defined as 'a surviving trace' or 'a small remaining quantity of something'. All good reasons to keep the work small and a bit mysterious.
