Title: Death By Mascot
Medium: Cut paper on Stretched Canvas
An original Cut Paper work on stretched canvas by Rachel, using small pieces of up-cycled magazine paper from several sources, adhered to primed canvas with satin medium and varnished with gloss UVL varnish to prevent fading. Sides of canvas painted for modern display, as shown.
This interpretive work evokes intensity from relationships between a variety of references, including a Lion King style stampede in a gorge, a nod to Picasso’s “Guernica,” and vibes of the Wild West. The title “Death By Mascot” is a clue to the meaning of these juxtapositions and is meant to stimulate thought by the viewer.
