This original collage is a tryptuch created using items that are normally thrown in the trash and upcycled panels. I started with medical trash, such as pharmaceutical inserts, birth control packages, and plastic packaging from things I accumulated (nothing hazardous, of course). Then, I added kitchen trash as in this piece such as vegetable bags and coffee wrappers. I aimed at pushing creative boundaries, minimizing my carbon footprint and showing that with a little creativity things normally thrown away can be turned into something beautiful. I painted the pharmaceutical inserts with watercolors in multiple colors then created a loose landscape in the background. I defined the landscape with a light layer of acrylic so the pharmaceutical inserts wording would still be visible. The trees are created using cofee bag packages that create the silhoutte of leafless splendor that show a glimpse of the mountains in the background. This is an absolutely stunning piece.
This is contains three piece, the two side panels are 9"x 24", and the medium panel is 18" x 24" (total 36"x24"). This original J.C.Pierstorff collage is wired and ready to hang.
