Detail, portrait of a bass player.
This portrait uses a variety of mixed media and collage. I found some great vintage magazines at a used bookstore in Villa Carlos Paz, Argentina. The feature story in one of the magazines was a huge earthquake which struck Cuzco, Peru in the early '60's. I used the photos from the story to create the legs.
The lower corners shows my continued fascination with pattern and texture. There are layers and layers of cut-out letters from the magazines and newspapers which I used to construct a floral pattern I took from vintage wallpapers. Next, I painted smaller version of the pattern on top.
