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 piece ended up with the concept of old smoke stacks and with the changes in regulations to clean up how things are done, the green represents renewal. Even without that idea, I liked the bold brush strokes, color field treatment and square format.
This work is mounted on watercolor paper background and can be float matted with a box frame or with space between the mat and backing to accommodate the slight relief thickness of it.
