A Masterpiece Completed

Despite only 3 hours sleep last night I have finally finished Beaded Lace. This artwork is made from more than 20000 hand cut and applied paper and bead pieces and is 16″ x 16″ (40cm x 40cm). I’ve nearly lost my eyesight with this one. It really is fiddly and as detailed as it looks.

This mixed media collage is a response to ideas on raw materials and fine cloths and how they can be fashioned into new and beautiful art forms. I’m hoping to show it first in Manhattan NY later this year.

A photograph simply does not share the enormity and complexity of what I’ve achieved here.IMAG0516[1]

So here’s a video too!
