Art Description

Collage: Paper, Paint, Acrylic, Graphite and Photo on Paper.

I photographed this retired TWA airplane in the aircraft graveyard in Tuscon, AZ while traveling back home to Austin from a road trip to Los Angeles. The wear and tear on these old aircraft spoke to me about their travels and history, and sent me on a journey to find travel ephemera to help tell its story. Every rivet, ding, dent and fading paint gives these old aircraft character and untold stories, like war veterans.

Unframed on masonite, offset from wall 2" on wood runners.

Keywords: Air travel, travel, ephemera, TWA, documents, flight, luggage tag, golden age of travel
