Baring my process

"Dare to be Bare"

Mixed metal collage on upholstery fabric with green fur and bottle caps

For my July Show at Scandals with Sylvia Mann

Inspired by some NUDE PHOTOS I found of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

I figured a male nude would be a good fit for my show at a gay bar.

I started with a sketch

Then scavenged my scrap pile for the right patinas

Like creating my own puzzle, assembling the pieces is the fun part

Each piece is hammered, shaped and sanded before I glue and nail it down.

I added this little pun as an inside joke.

 Hope to see you all at Scandals!
