Ringleader - Acrylic mix media w/ cardboard tubes

2,110.00

"Ring Leader" is the perfect marriage of recycled cardboard tape tubes and scrapped wood from a wood shop to which acrylic paint tied it all together in perfect harmony. A fully recycled, upcycled, sustainable piece. I am known as the recycle-artist in my community, therefore I have friends sending bits and pieces of things that have potential in their eyes. In this case I have a friend that manufactures toys using duct tape. She generates an inordinate volume of cardboard tube trash. On one occasion she brought me four 13 gallon bags of her tubes and asked if I could use... I had her drop them at my studio and there they sat for a good year. Wondering what on earth I would ever do with all those tubes... It took me a year to get inspired, but there you have it. The piece came together when I created my signature scrap canvas board and the strips of wood looked so perfect and inviting. I could not bear to cover the canvas with paper to paint on... I saw the tubes in my studio and bingo... the rest is what you see....
