Copper Embossing

I just thought I'd give it a try... and of course, I had some scrap copper lying around (one benefit of being a found object artist!). I love copper, and I like how it lends itself so nicely to relief work.
A handy skill! And neat on its own, or as part of larger things...

"Sky and Clothespins"



Acrylic and 22K gold leaf on beechwood panel, 16x12"

She is calm and confident, and eco-conscious. Post-afternoon-delight, he is just leaving the frame, and she is OK with that; she is bringing in the blanket they lay upon. This is an exploration of media and composition, celebrating femininity, the outdoors, and practicality.

SOLD

"Fencepost Man"


Sculpture, found objects, 30"h

"Fencepost Man" is made from the remains of a cedar fencepost, with electric fence insulators and copper wire. He is very happy to be a man. Yay!

"Underneath"


48" x 12"
Salvaged mirror, metallic and acrylic paint on masonite

"Underneath" explores the mixed feelings many of us experience as we contemplate our naked bodies and our sexuality. Initially, we see the surface: the reflection in the mirror. But there is another layer beneath that unstable plane, shadowed by its fragments: the self-image which is vulnerable and uncertain. Hopefully, we can also see the beauty there.

"Temple"




Temple, sculpture, 24"h


The "In the City" show (Arbor Gallery), from my statement:

I am firmly rooted in a rural way of life, and my take on 'City' is tinged with apprehension, awe, and a touch of cynicism. I appreciate the beauty that can be found there, but I am uncomfortable with some of the forces behind the pulses and the monuments of urban life.
These sculptures acknowledge the discovery of the hidden treasures within 'City', and the adulation of the flawed, decaying deity called capitalism, and the toxic marring of the Earth's surface by the industry of these seething colonies of humanity.
 They are not meant as a judgement, but as an observation of things that are quietly present while we tour 'City' seeking shiny, colourful, tasty things.

Sculpture 36" h, cedar

"Toxic Landscape"

I have used junked circuitboards to depict an industrial park. This sculpture is the first in a series featuring discarded computer parts as landscape.
