stay out of the way (letter to an island)

an original painting, mixed media collage

on cradled wood panel

12 x 12 x 1.5 inches

ready to hang (wire secured in the back)

a multilayered collage

integrated with original drawing, painting and monoprint elements

this work is just as much about subtraction as it is inclusion, with elements torn and even ripped away, done in stages, revisited over time (put away, thought about, worked on, put away again), like art in time lapse

no one understands your isolation until you treat it as a prize

also somewhere in here is a letter from an old friend (now an island)

many other found/recycled ingredients

shipped with masonite or other board

everything from my shop comes with an extra art surprise
