Here is another mixed-media collage I made for my RISD class. I used a variety of materials including magazine, photocopies, drawings, tissue paper, acrylic paints, matte medium, gloss medium and colored pencils. You might be wondering what that awesome raised texture us in the upper half of the image: it's the tape that my husband uses to wrap the handle of his softball bat! I just layered it and folded it to make sort of a land mass like a hill. I especially like the polluted river with the dead ( note upside-down swimmers) and dying fish with the "grill" marks! This was the first piece I made; you can see the others below so please check them out!
This picture of the mixed-media relief below allows you to see more of the depth and overall construction of the image. There are several shallow levels within the composition.
