Item Description

Oxide is a handmade, one-of-a-kind mixed-media artwork. This piece has been published in my book The Mixed-Media Artist (North Light Books, 2013). It is a self-portrait that was created in response to the prompt My Shadow Side

As quoted in the book "A shadow is a trace, a reflection and a faint indication of the real thing. In a manner of speaking, the face we show the world is but a shadow of our innermost and true selves. Like an x-ray, this piece speaks to the part of me that reflects my being, my core and my truth - changing with time, altered by experience and aging with every breath I take."

This piece began with an 10" x 10" cradled wood panel which is layered with gesso, acrylics paints and acrylic mediums. The facial features have all been completed using found objects -- pieces with their own history that represent a shadow of their former selves as well.

This piece has been painted on the sides so that it can hang as is and is signed 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.
