"The Details of Life"

"The Details of Life"
Rock me.  This piece pulls the viewer in to see the details, in doing so, the viewer sees himself. . . . 

A 4" wooden picture frame became the base for this wall-hung mirror assemblage. Attached to the wooden frame are various and sundry found objects of any person's life. A license plate, a typewriter eraser, a tag from the Del Prado Museum coat room, dominoes, plastic scissors, vintage clock parts, guitar tuning pegs, fishing line, a red plastic monkey and of course "bling". On top is a vintage, silver metal drawer pull for easy carrying.

Lot's to see, to take a closer look.  (to enlarge  click any image to enlarge)

  8. Wow! This is fabulous! So much to see. I need to study it more, but what first caught my attention was the guitar strings strung across the mirror. Very very cool.

  12. I just got back online for the first time in several weeks (other than some scheduled posts). I'm hoping my computer woes are over and I can visit more often. I really like the assemblage because you become a part of the art when you are up close to it. Very well executed.

    I wanted to tell you the friend you asked about on my blog sidebar is Joseph Peck and yes, he is a musician. He plays steel drums and that's why his nickname is "Panhead." He also makes recordings and writes all his music. He's very talented and his music is not what one would consider "traditional" steel drums.

    Sorry I haven't been around sooner, but I am hopefully back. This was the longest I was ever offline, so I'm thrilled to be back. I hope you had a great new year, since I missed the actual day!
