MIXED MEDIA: pushing the envelope(s)


At the left is a collage of actual pay envelopes from two jobs made for some art class I took somewhere. I can't even remember where or when, though it might have been the Design with Collage class I took at GLSP program at Weseleyan in the late 80s. I have had a lot of trouble deciding which way is up in this piece.

At the right is a digitized rendition of it which I think works better. I like the differing near and far feel of dark and light areas. This work is  not about pay, or mail or society. It's just about shapes in repetition and the way the eye moves through them.
