Mixed media


This piece is made up of a lot of glue and styrofoam packing peanuts.

Then I covered it with tissue paper.

Then I started painting it.

I ended up adding a lot more tissue paper to decrease the contrast between the smooth canvas areas and the lumpy styrofoamed areas.

This is the photo that the photographer who came to the school to shoot our senior theses.

It’s difficult to take a picture of it that really captures it well.

Hanging in the gallery for our show was a little better lighting and view for the photo.

This piece is 36 x 48 x 7

The gallery is in the library at our school. When my instructor introduced me to the Director of the Library she said,

“She’s the one responsible for the face up there.”

He responded with, “It’s certainly distinctive.”
