Art Description

Collage: Ceramic, Paper, Wood, Found Objects and Fabric on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric) and Wood.

"Mister Quint", 2014, mixed media on fiberboard. The background is built up with glue and paint on an MDF panel, then the objects -- leaves, doll's heads, a paper cutout, fabric, broken glass, paper -- are glued onto the surface and painted. The panel is framed in a "box" style frame with a half-centimeter gap all the way around the panel, separating it from the frame.

The title is based on the character of Peter Quint, the sinister ghost in Henry James' short novel "The Turn of the Screw".
