I have three new assemblage wall pieces in the works. Sizes range from 30 – 52 inches wide, which I would consider “medium.” These photos show the early stages. One has a base coat of tan and white acrylic and the other two are unpainted wood. All will get various layers of acrylic, paper, marker, and other materials.
Pieces like these usually start with found scraps of plywood cobbled together to suggest compositions. Intentional shapes are added as the form develops. A big part of my interest in this technique is the interplay of three dimensional construction with two dimensional surface marking, resulting in an ambiguous form that shifts between sculpture, painting, and drawing.
