This piece is as of yet untitled. It's a 3d piece, and I am working with mirrors and lights.
The idea is to have the building extend out from the substrate....and be open on the bottom and top, allowing the curious ones to peak inside. I have done collage work on both the inside and outside of the building. The only way you can see the inside work is by the reflection in the mirror. It's hard to explain. Let me show you.
|An overall view, with crappy lighting!|
The base is a thick 1" piece of gnarly wood that I found in the garage. I painted it white, and then added accents with GOLDEN interference paint. This worked really well, and when you look at it in person, it's pearly. I started this piece before my wedding and ocean honeymoon, so I was in a shell mood and actually picked apart vintage shell earrings in order to create the weeds and front lawn.
|A closeup of the right side with better lighting, you can almost see the pearly effect.|
|Underneath the building rests the mirror. And a hole.|
|The people living inside only revealed thru the mirror once this is attached.|
