volumes on white

well this is my latest piece- I have had a great time with this series- although my husband watches me do them and says it in no way looks fun. Truth be told these pieces are best appreciated up close. It is mixed media- layers of acrylic, tissue, painted tissue paper. So there is a lot of play with transparency and translucency and every book is different. But there is much of adhesive and cutting tiny strips which is arduous but fun.

Come to think of it I think I forgot to post the other pieces in this series- such is my life... so see them below


volumes on white 48x48”


volumes 30x40”


volumes on shelf 10x20”


small volumes 9x12” on cradled hardboard

Hi Leslie!

These are amazing! If you ever want to sell the volumes on white mixed media, I think steven would love it! (my email is in that list that your mom put together). You're amazing! I need to start creating again!

Love you all!

I freaking adore this. It might be my new favorite, and that's saying something!

I can only imagine the huge time commitment for the largest one--each one is different?

So worth the time investment, Les.

P.S. I think I might get to see you at SVU. I'm tentatively planning to go.
