postcard jazz

Here are some details of the first postcard-sized work in a series I will be working about the human act of making.

I'm not trying to pretend the subject hasn't been done, but today, playing around with a collage that wasn't working, I became very interested in art-making as a subject in itself. So I started over with that in mind.

Contained in this work: sketch called "freshly cut grass all over my feet", cut out smithsonian pages (this issue featured painted patterns from iranian architecture), oil pastel, tangled string from the floor, national geographic image (cropped) of a snake, pieces of a box of flatbread crackers, masking tape, and ballpoint pen.
