This piece is part of a series of collage works with a limited color palette. The process is with crumpled parchment paper or handmade paper dipped in watercolor paint and unfolded to dry. I created a number of pieces and experimented with some brushstrokes and color variations. Then, choosing among the collage pieces put together numerous combinations before finishing.
This artwork went through many variations and layering of squares and hand painted embellishments. I had done this type of collage before quite a long time ago that was in the forma of a company logo interpretation. I thought I would experiment again with some leftover pieces and some new ones to come up with this patchwork with a bright center and darker perimeter. Some embellishments include gold paint, pearlescent paint, and pieces cut from other paintings.
This work has a thickness to it, so that should be taken into consideration when matting and framing so it doesn't touch the glazing. It can be float matted in a box frame or matted with spacers between it and any backing the work is mounted on.
