This collage measures 13W x 19L, mounted on archival board. The materials include hand-dyed papers, found images, re-purposed monoprints and wasp nest paper. It has been coated in matte acrylic medium to preserve the papers and protect the image.
I was inspired to do this piece by the book "The World Without Us" by Alan Weisman in which he details how our infrastructures would change if people were to suddenly disappear - essentially, nature would take over. This piece shows trees growing out of pallets, shipping containers, buildings, even the Coliseum. The extinct Ivory-Billed Woodpecker is the symbol of absence. The verticals of the trees growing upwards are offset by the swirling motion of the wasp paper in the background. Even though nature is persistent in its mode of survival, we also know that it is fragile in the face of humanity.
It is presently unframed and would look best in a simple black frame protected under plexiglass.
