Digital Focus project

| No Comments

So far, I have bought matte mod-podge that will be used to place paper onto the wooden boxes that I have bought so far. I have magazines and papers collected also. To start, I will first do little postcard sizes before I work up to the boxes. I got 2 of the 3 boxes at an antique store and the 3rd at Micheal's. The project itself will be imagery collaged together to create a self portrait.

images that i found inspirational -

I usually experiment with self-exploration and abstraction

Another artist that works with boxes is Joseph Cornell. He makes his art on the outside of the box and even works with the relationship with the inside.
