"Van Lo" is another piece in my mixed media series focused on creating collages using old and discarded books. The book components included in this collage are the book cover, end papers, binding mesh and illustrations. Fine art papers and randomly splattered acrylic ink and gold leaf complete the piece. This was 'built' on watercolor paper and then adhered to the wood cradled board. This is my way of creating unique works of art from ordinary objects.
