Troubled Water: original handmade cut paper collage fine art by Rachel Dolezal.
Original art is made from recycled magazine paper with intricate layers of detail and imagery. Varnished with a UVL varnish to protect the paper colors from fading with light exposure.
Original collage, with framed outer dimensions of 35×29″ and inner image dimensions of 18×24″. Framed in a high-quality silver frame valued at $650.
Inspiration: This piece is part of a 2018 series of collages drawing inspiration from the universal elements of light, water, air and earth. In “Troubled Water,” human forms and fish forms swirl together, fighting captivity and death -seeking freedom and life. An arm reaches out toward the wounded fish in the bottom right corner, a figure struggles against the net in the center of the image, and a figure escapes atop the wave. Many other metaphorical forms are layered throughout this evocative composition, representative of the difficulty of sorting through all the complexities, stresses and tough circumstances of life.
**Due to the large size of this original art and heaviness of the frame & glass and the variables of cost to ship to different zipcodes, any shipping/packing/insurance cost beyond the flat rate of $10 (which will automatically be charged during checkout) will be billed separately upon shipment.
