Piece description from the artist
A landscape created from found and re-purposed objects – creating a rich world out of simplicity is the basis of this piece. When personal economy and need collide, creativity happens. This work is comprised of light foam board, acrylic paint applied with a palette knife and pages of old phone books, creating not a visual effect, but a soft texture beneath the paint. An architectural design of jungle images is applied to give a sense of foliage and nature while retaining an abstract and soothing quality, and a bright tomato red pops out near the base of the composition like an exotic bird flying out from the trees.
