Found Art Tuesday 1-16-07: FAME



Well, I actually finished this piece in 15 minutes. I decided to challenge myself and give myself a time limitation for this piece. The idea came to me almost instantaneously after learning what the theme was. I could not get the thought out of my head...that everybody wants their 15 minutes. The piece is a mixed media and includes inks, found papers, and rubber stamps. The main image, at the bottom of the page, was found as I was flipping through a magazine. She represents how fleeting fame really is. I call the piece "15 minutes," and will leave it at a local watering hole :)

Check out Rosa's piece (her link is listed on the side). I really like the idea of doing a wearable piece of found art!

Katy, I like how the message comes across really well and I love the found papers. The composition is really good!

Kathy, I would love to chat with you about a possible gallery showing at my "watering hole". It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. You can contact me at orders@consciouscup.com

Thanks for the surprise,

Mike
