~(PEACE)…IT BEGINS WITH ME…
was designed specifically for a Houston Art Challenge. 100 Vintage(50 yrs old) Picasso "PEACE DANCE’’ posters were distributed for the artists to ’’reconstruct’’ / re-invent, it in a new way and then all were shown together and bid on to raise money for Buffalo Bayou Park.
I hand cut out each figure and suspended it behind 12 + harvested ,recycled glass panes( yes,its heavy),I wanted them to come to life as if a real circle was moving in space….
Added fine opalescence glitter for a glint to catch your eye as you pass by,and a back panel of smoke blue Mylar paper on which I hand painted acrylic glazed clouds…
It is housed in a hand made pine shadow box (not show) with leaves tooled in the trim and a decorative brass handle.
Like the song "man in the mirror "… who ever views it, sees their own reflection in the dance for peace.
Do you care to join in? Let’s take a peek…..
Homage to Picasso’s “Peace Dance”
