the gorey detales

last year i was invited by my friend sylvia luna to be a part of
the gorey detales
inspired by edward gorey's "the gashlycrumb tinies"
26 artist, one for each letter of the alphabet
where given the assignment to create a macabre piece of art
with a character, and a twisted yet humorous rhyme
the collection has been on tour and featured in somerset studio
and will be displayed at the stamp act until halloween
i was given the letter "L"
"Lolita's thirst rose her from the crypt
thoughts of piercing the hemophiliacs lip "
my canvas was made of several layers of
cardboard, old newspaper and book pages
wallpaper, plaster, crackle paste and paint
the photo was found in an old scrap book i bought
at an antique show
i scrapped out a mirror and added the photo from behind
and set the frame into the canvas
i enjoyed working on this project and to be in the company of some excellent artists
