never wonder (always trouble)
an original art box collage
6 1/4 x 8 3/4 x 1 1/2 inches
a full-size cigar box remade as an art object by layers of collage
much of my art is centred around repurposing found or discarded things, and while many people use old cigar boxes for various reasons, rarely are they made over and transformed into something of real value again, something original and unique
found paper, text paper, wax prints, ink drawings, wallpaper, wrapping paper, photocopies, advertising miscellania
the metal latch has been added
a fully-functional box
all sides have been collaged
the wax print aspects are semi-transparent
sealed and protected with a heavy gloss varnish
as with all objects made by human hands, this box has tiny, dignifying flaws
I didn't want to kiss you goodbye — that was the trouble — I wanted to kiss you good night — and there's a lot of difference.
― Ernest Hemingway
The destructive character lives from the feeling, not that life is worth living, but that suicide is not worth the trouble.
~ Walter Benjamin
As a small child, I felt in my heart two contradictory feelings, the horror of life and the ecstasy of life.
― Charles Baudelaire
