Hollow Forms Protrude Into Space
Extend your formerly flat work into the third dimension! Add more depth to your collages by building outward or upward! If you have primarily worked with two-dimensional collage or painting, you may find it easy to expand into bas-relief (low relief). Heavy foil can be rolled, crumpled, creased, and pleated. Or score and bend heavy, thick paper for dimensional effects!
This work (below) with found objects and scrap materials, portrays my emotions about our dirty air and spoiled environment. The dimensional "smoke-stack-like" forms were made with bits of aluminum tape. They might remind you of volcanoes! I also adhered gritty pieces of flat elements I found at roadside, and used acrylic paint. The title is Industrial Revolution.
(I suppose some of you will see a face in it, with a red nose!) Feedback is welcome.
