Distressed Paper now under glass

For the past couple of months, I have been working on my resourceful skills.

I always been very comfortable using paper than, over canvas or wood. Drawing is natural exercises, that speak in simple doodles.

My art supplies are changing ( ex. Having to change sumi ink to instant coffee, stale wine, fabric dye and recycling papers).

Though it may not seem like there is much effort in making paper out of trash bags and plastic bags. It’s very time-consuming, and sometimes it feels like you’re trying to make wine out of water.

Though something, I can’t cut back on preserving artwork, that’s by good framing. There is something about the preserved artwork under glass. That idea that “you can’t touch”. By putting a fragile piece of glass separating you from the artwork. The Glass Reflecting off  lights and figures.  Then put a dark frame that will then contain the piece in on unmovable space.

Here’s a few pieces, just back from framing, for the La Luz de Jesus “Everything But The Kitschen Sync” Group Show in March. Wish I could take a picture without the reflection from the glass.
