New Media: Digital, Manipulated, New Media, Found Objects on Paper.
My collage work is often funny and anthropomorphic--that's the case here. The creature is either a bear or a dog--I manipulated an image from a book of 19th-c zoological illustrations. The hat is based on a hat I saw in a book of drawings of old Japanese toys. The idea is to spoof the humorous aspect of seduction and would-be flirtatiousness, by transposing a human facial expression to a non-human but still attractive creature.
I use Epson pigment inks and archival fine art paper for my limited editions of digital images--here, the paper is Hahnemülle Soft Felt with a Watercolor Finish. The work is unframed and will come rolled up in a protective jacket inside a mailing tube.
