Corn

Corn
In this Crystal Neubauer collage activity we had a few minutes to select a pile of ephemera that we liked.  Then the clock was set for 5 minutes and we created very quickly.  Corn resulted.

One thing that I forgot to mention in a previous blog entry was when we went to the beach to collect mark making tools there was an old bunker.  Actually it is a concrete shell of an old factory power station that existed on the site.  The factory created leather shoes.  Graffiti artists have created on the sides of the building both inside and out.  I wanted to explore the inside, no easy feat I might add, where I found flaking pieces of layered spray paint on the ground.  I feel I scored big time because the layers resemble mica and with a little assistance flake off.  The yellow in this collage is a piece of the layered graffiti.

The old spray paints are grand colours! I wonder if it counts as defacing art to pick bits off graffiti? (That's a joke!)

Really interesting how it all works together so well& with the colors, swish I'd been along on the graffiti hunt. Score!

Nice one John. The time limit thing can be really fun- I remember when we did that for one of our assignments in the first Randel Plowman class.

Crystal is such an incredible artist/instructor as we can tell by your pieces. They really turned out awesome. Hope to take her classes when she comes to L.A. again in October. (Cindy Schaben)

What treasures you find on the ground! 5 minutes is not much time but looks like it was enough. Corn is wonderful!
