Mixed-Media Assemblages > On This Side We are Free

This mixed-media piece was created on a 12 x 12" canvas that was painted red. It was made specifically for a gallery exhibition called Flora and Fauna. I wanted it to feel like a three-dimensional piece so I created depth by having items pop out at the viewer. There are fairy lights behind it, as well as a blue LED light behind the eye. It also glows in the dark. The branches were created using dryer lint and Golden fabric stiffener, then painted.
