Gallery Wrap 36 x 24
Acrylic, Gesso and Charcoal
When painted over, graphite mixes in and dirties up the color. This gives this piece a sense of depth and age, while also suggesting the presence of the city. Graphite is used to outline images and frame in areas in this collage. It is smudged around creating the same effect as in the paintings. It also obscures the literal fact that a collage item might just be a piece of shopping bag or a handwritten letter and unifies it with the composition.
