Lesson Learned #2: Danger of Quotes Out Of Context

Abstract Mixed Media on Poly-carbonate


This work stems from my practice of using everything to its fullest potential. I had some design elements that I had used in making some greeting cards for friends and family, but always thought more could be done with them. The same was true for some hand drawn elements I had created.

After attending a lecture at the Kimbell about Georges Braque, I began to view collage and these idle components differently. “Lessons Learned-#1 and #2” are the first results of this part of my practice.

Although I reference Braque in this post, and artists like Peter Max in some of my graphic design, I had not thought about combining those two references in a single work until now.
