Work by Cornwall artist Constance Old
Constance Old will exhibit her work at the Cornwall Library from December 13 until January 28, 2018.
Artist Constance Old presents her mixed media exhibit “phrases in my head”. The placards in the “phrases in my head” series are based on phrases that occur to her and that she collects on 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” pieces of paper. She chooses a phrase to work with then writes a journal entry about the phrase on claybord. The journal entry works as an armature for an underpainting. Once the underpainting is finished, the letterforms are pieced together from stickers (rows of dots in different colors and sizes) that were originally part of a JCrew store window display. New phrases continue to drift into my head onto pieces of paper, then wait to be made into placards.
Her reception will be Saturday, December 16 at 5pm.
