“Air and Space” Red Abstract Contemporary Collage and Found Wood Sculpture 2021



Wood, Acrylic, Magazine Paper


Colorful abstract contemporary collage sculpture that incorporates collage, paint, and found wood. The organic, amorphous form features a primarily red grouping of spires attached to a natural wood base. This creates an interesting contrast between the painted surface and the natural base.
