Collage/Assemblage for Finnabair CT

Sometimes you just have to let it out. Express what's going on inside your head. Whether it is on a piece of paper, canvas, wood or in a journal, expressing your thoughts in a creative way is like "venting" to a friend: necessary and good for you.
With all the horror that we see daily on the news, it's difficult to be immune to just how "out of control" the world seems to be. 
Humanity, love and religion hang in the balance...............
Try explaining these 3 things at the same time to your children in today's climate of international unrest.
Hanging In The Balance
Symbolism is a major component of art.
The face represents Humanity
The heart represents Love
The cross represents Religion
The clock represents Time
The circle that surrounds them represents The World
The printed background represents the News/ Media
As a civilisation we are hanging on.........but only just.

I love to work on wooden blocks because of their solidity.

Amazing Finnabair products used throughout...........art basics gels for image transfer and the adhesion of all embellishments and collage pieces; black and white gesso; art alchemy acrylic paints; micro beads; mechanicals; resist canvas; stamps.
A sort step by step of the construction of this piece and a full list of all products used is HERE on the Finnabair blog.

It's not always the beauty in the world that inspires us to create......the ugly is valid too.
