Recent Work

A few weeks ago I finished up a collage commissioned by Aaron, president of Evo Design in Connecticut.  Aaron is also a CCAD alum and it was ridiculously nice of him to take interest in my work!  It was a fun piece to work on because the canvas was so much larger than the paper collages I've been making recently.  Which is like suddenly having a giant backyard to run around in when you're used to something considerably smaller.

What I think is really neat is that this collage is hanging in what used to be an abandoned water treatment plant that is now Evo's design studio.  I'm always saving collage materials that other people might throw away and giving them a second life as part of my artwork, incorporating scraps into a beautiful composition.  Sometimes it just takes a creative eye to see the potential in certain things.  I hope this collage contributes a little extra color & fun to their workspace!
