Table Setting Collage, dry pigment, glitter on cardboard 12" x 48" 2013
This series of new work entitled “In The City” is inspired by the asaroton, or unswept floor trompe l’oeil mosaics that were popular in the Roman and Hellenistic period. They featured ignored and discarded floor debris. I have shifted the setting to an urban street scene and included contemporary “city” trash. I have used a mixture of dried pigment, sand and glitter on cardboard, arranged in a grid pattern, to evoke the look and feeling of a city sidewalk.
