Falling Through the Cracks started with photographs of the intricately designed sidewalks of Prague. A city resident ignores these mosaic footpaths the way a DC local passes hurriedly by the White House. But as a tourist, I was captivated by the patterns and made art from art.
I reduce the digital images of the sidewalk photos to about an inch wide and fill a whole sheet of paper (Word doc) with that one photo.
With scissors, I cut shapes by hand from the patterned paper, adding color and depth by gluing on pastel paper and vice versa. Finished pieces are 8"x10".
I am selling unframed giclee prints of the works in this series for $45 each. Please contact me if you're interested, lerk13 at gmail.
