PRELUDIO 1,2 and 3 is a triptych (MIXED
MEDIA) in gold, copper
and earth tones,
I added cheese cloth, scraps of archival
matte paper, sheet music
and many (very thin) layers of gloss
medium & varnish (which is
still workable after it dries).
These layers softened the plies of the cheese cloth.
Each piece has a small piece of music showing “Prelude” of a vintage sheet music of BACH.
(Hover over it and you'll find it left middle.)
Each little Gem has a metal, yet a very soft look.
This triptych was part of my solo show “MY GEMS” at the Academy of Lifelong Learning (University of Delaware) where I teach art.
