Item Description

Fortitude is a handmade, one-of-a-kind mixed-media artwork. This piece began with an 9" x 12" cradled wood panel and measures approximately 11" x 12" complete. The base was layered with gesso, inks and acrylic paint and then heat embossed.. Layers of vintage and altered mixed media materials, all of which have a history all their own, were then added. Stacks of vintage books covers are the base for a focal point of 4, vintage brass number stencils. Additional metal objects, paper collage and bits of fabric were also added. There are many small details in this piece that connect to the concept of the passing of time and an earlier age. 

This piece has been painted on the sides and wired so that it can hang as is. The piece is signed, titles and dated. on the reverse.

All art will be packaged carefully to avoid the risk of damage. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
