Metro Card Paintings and Collage
Metrocard paintings and drawings created for the art exhibition, single Fare 3 at RH Gallery in New York.All of these diminutive works are made on old metro cards I had saved while living in NY for six years. Working at this size permitted me to play with various concepts and experiment with different media. The linear form of the human figure and nature’s beauty are the main influences on these particular pieces. Artistic influence comes from Nouveau, Fashion Illustration, Japonism, and the line work of Hokusai. The materials used were washi paper, vinyl cut stickers, wax, watercolor, oil, silver, spray paint, ultra fine point sharpie, mod podge, acrylic sealer, drawings, and ink.
