Childhood & Nostalgia

Bricks for the Young Proletariat
Acrylic, Ink, and Found Plastic on Handmade Paper

This piece deals with my Art Studio Concentration of Childhood and Nostalgia; two motifs I am excited to work with.  It is also painted on a thick slice of handmade paper that I made from used scraps, leaves, and old newspaper.  (Shred the material, submerge into a tray of water; blend; pour, and let dry).  (The results are quite interesting).
I also incorporated physical lego bricks as a sculptural moment in the lower right corner.  Keeping the dream alive - I worked primarily in lego for many years.
