In the course of my more abstract work, I sometimes find images/shapes that remind me of facial features. I throw those ripped papers into a pile and then, every once in a while, I'll turn to that collection and see what I can make from it. And that's how the â€œFoundlingâ€ series was born...
Now some of my Foundling collages have been installed at Denver Healthâ€™s Lowry Family Health Center. Theyâ€™ve â€œadoptedâ€ 32 Foundlings in all.
Each collage is 7 x 5" and is composed of contemporary found and repurposed papers. The back is designed with a spacer so that the artwork appears to float off the wall a little, yielding nice shadow patterns.
Hope the collection will bring a smile to many faces in the waiting room!
