Size of Original: 16×20
An original Cut Paper work on canvas by Rachel, using small pieces of up-cycled magazine paper from several sources, adhered to canvas and varnished with UVLS to prevent fading. Sides of canvas painted for modern display.
Dissoluble: able to be dissolved, loosened, or disconnected. capable of being destroyed, as through disintegration or decomposition.
This piece speaks to the fragility of human life. We are all in a sense “dissoluble.” The figure holds a globe in his hand as he is dissolved into history, marked by ancient stone drawings and weathered locked doors. A dog sniffs for clues leading to a smaller locked and boarded door.
As with all art, various interpretations of my images are welcome.
