Chaotic Comfort sm

Chaotic Comfort side 2

#041017-A, "Chaotic Comforts" 8 x 8 piece of collage art on watercolor paper mounted on a painted 8 x 8 wood panel, free standing.


Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics, sanded magazine paper with acrylic, Citra Solv magazine, Stained deli sheets, painted drawing paper, graphic crayon, acrylics and glazing, wax pastel crayons, black book thread, black carpet tacks, painted birch branches,  sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: So I pull out collage papers, drawn to the green, resemblance of my environment. Switching things up for myself I prepare an 8 x 8 wood panel. Having no idea this piece would be a free standing piece for a shelf instead of a piece of a wall. Allowing simple choice making as I go.  I started with that horizontal composition and see where it takes me.  This past week I’ve been limiting my social media, not totally but getting into life itself and at every turn there is still over spillage of what is happening in our world and the people in it.This is not humane.  What for, our comforts? prestige-prejudice?, who's got more, while other suffer?  My heart cringes in this Chaos.
