American Roll, Magazine Strips on Cold-Press Paper (24.25 x 17" Famed and Matted- Private Collection)
Inspired by the artwork of Lee Gainer.
This piece was made from strips of cut up magazines that were hot-glued to paper to create an American flag. I loved making this piece. It was originally suppose to only be about 5 inches wide, but gradually started growing and growing until I found myself rooting thorough our recycling bin to fin more magazines that had bright, fire engine red pages. The cuts and burns were totally worth it in the end. As an early Christmas present for my mom, this project almost made her cry when she unwrapped it.
