I love, love, love how intuitive making art/creating is. Sometimes I have a firm idea in place before I start something, what I want it to look like. More often than not though, I have no idea. That was the case with this piece which started out as two scraps of wood and a seashell.
This year has taught us a lot about filtering: leaving behind and shutting out what doesn’t resonate because there is too much stress, overwhelm, and disruption to handle everything. This assemblage is about protection of the inner self.
Measuring 9” x 3” x 4”, this piece is made of wood, shell, paper, acrylic paint, copper wire, and found objects.
