This body of work began sometime in the mid 1990's, as an experiment, seeing if I could adhere a dress to a canvas and create a painting over all the textures. "Dress painting" is a term I came up with to explain these when I simply couldn't think of anything better. Over the years they have evolved, with new elements of collage being added. Dress patterns, photographs, and embroidery all appear from time to time, as well as lino block prints, rubber stamps and gold leaf. I will use this space to explore the beginnings of this series, as well as showing my latest work. If the piece is available for sale you'll find the price at the bottom.

The Destructive Little Bastard

Linocut prints of dead birds in the background, paired with a photo transfer of a vintage photo begin this piece.  Stitched antlers, a beaded box around his heart, and a line of painted split cherries carry it through.  The weapon of choice, a child's toy hoe, hangs below.

Approximately 24" x 48"
