"A showcase of absolute gems installment three"





nekoconco:iconnekoconco: brought it to my attention that i i should really remember to write a small description along with my pieces that tell a little how it was made or more about what its made of etc. So thank you to nekoconco.

This piece was created in traditional collage technique, meaning each object you see was hand cut and positioned and glued in place. *The woman was originally putting her arms around a man, and it was a 1823 add for shampoo. The knives came from an 1820's add for kitchen knife set, the words came from an add for an energy pill from the same magazine.

The only current date image in the piece is the large fork, witch came from an add for mcdonald's of all things.

The strange cardboard like plastic stuff came off the side of the road back when i lived with Richard in Beaverton.

Thats amaising! The actual composition is alraedy so strong, and the images seem so compelling... and conflicting... whats she doing? or being made to do? Her expression from the embrace, with the compulsion of the big hand and fork...
Love it...

Thanks for being part of what makes forming these collections so much fun for me, by creating an interesting and eye-catching piece that fits into the calibre and style of work that I really like to feature.

were the knives actually in the picture with the woman?
Reply
:iconeesss:
eesss Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2008
No each knife was cut out by me and placed in her hands XD
It took a long long time and the layering was really fun. I guess i should write more detail in the description of my pieces and how they where created huh? hehehe. <3 ///

do you have a special paper knife, or is it x-acto?
Reply
:iconeesss:
eesss Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2008
Really crappy scissors. Xacto's are neat though i think its harder to get clean smooth corners with them. But yes...just normal poop scissors. hehe. ///
