Mixed Media 3-D Collage, 1981
Watercolor on cast paper collage in plexiglass shadow box frame
Hand signed and numbered from the edition of 30 on the front
This mixed media watercolor on 3-D paper construction is an absolutely unique variant to this signed and numbered multiple - as each one is hand painted with a totally different design and color scheme. Elegantly framed in a plexi shadow box, designed in the shape of a sundial - the earliest type of timekeeping device, indicating the time of day by the position of the shadow of some object exposed to the sun’s rays. As the day progresses, the sun moves across the sky, causing the shadow of the object to move and indicating the passage of time - hence each edition from the series bears different color, light and shadows. A really ingenious concept for an artwork.
