#30 We are what we eat

First of 3 older pieces–the assemblages I was doing at the OX. Few have survived the 4 moves since. They are hard to store, and don’t travel well.
Auto motor insulation and street trash. 26×15″  From 2012. Taking them for storage at my son’s house.

Tracing the Way

We see the past through the lens of the present. Points that brought us to where we find ourselves become markers of a path we construct, but which, in reality, is anything but straight. More like finding seeds that begin to grow out of debris we thought we’d abandoned. This is a piece from March, 2013 (#139) that was lost when we fled the Ox. Here was the anti-portrait (what we see is not what we are). There was a dirty, crusted window screen like a veil over the face. The trash assemblages I was making had begun to emerge as paintings. I recognize in this piece a link to what I’ve found opening into the future.

#210 (from 2013, work from the Ox)

#210 from September. 2013. An assemblage from the Ox, a car door panel, with acrylic color–what I call, ReCyclations–recycling trash to art.
Wonder what happened to this one? … check my log. Ah…poet,  Kimberly Ann Southwick bought this! Does she still have it?
