Vase 1 (Outside the Box Series)
Framed 19 x 27
Vase 1 is one of a large series called “Out of the Box”, a play on the phrase “think outside the box”. One Christmas I was recycling all the boxes and wrappings in my messy garage. I happened to look with new eyes at the molded styrofoam and cardboard packaging that comes with appliances. An idea came to use them as large “stamps”. I painted them with acrylic paint and printed them on paper. The series includes numerous abstracts, a flock of flying birds and two vases.
