"Advise and Consent" is part of my mixed media series focused on creating collages using old and discarded books. This piece incorporates elements from the book "Advise and Consent" by Allen Drury, copyright 1959. It is comprised of book cover cloth, end papers, illustrations and book binding mesh. The collage is built on watercolor paper, splattered with black & copper acrylic ink and mounted on a wood cradled board. This is my way of repurposing abandoned, ordinary objects and turning them into unique works of art.
