A Painting Made From New Yorker Magazines

Filed under: Looked Into   Tagged:

It’s abstract. The painter writes:
I started this piece in May or June of this year, first constructing the collage components, then picked it back up around early September to start painting, and finally came back to it last week to finish it up. I still need to trim the rope on the sides (you can see they aren’t painted), but I think it’s otherwise completed.
No title; oil on canvas, rope, torn up pieces of a New Yorker article on Iraq and a picture from a New Yorker article about redneck comedy.
Just before I started Emdashes, my sister Kate gave over a page of one of her famed collage calendars to New Yorker images.
