Spread 220 – Covered Me

Spread 216 – “Covered Me” 

18 March 2016

Vintage and personal papers, matte medium, PaperArtsy paints, Nova color paints, black and white gesso, Micron pens, pencil, matte varnish, image transfers with hand-stitched edges.

It happens over time. Little by little life covers who we are. We loose touch with who we truly are. When will I be completely covered?

In memory of Henry Darger April 12, 1892 – April 13, 1973.

    It is like there are two sides to this spread. The public side and the private side; the light side and the dark side; the innocent side and the experienced side. It is almost like a nightmare for the little girl. Isn’t it fun to try and interpret. Very strong work, Brian. 🙂

      Thank you John. That is why I don’t like to say too much about my spreads. I would rather folks interpret them for themselves. I know what they mean to me & their meaning changes over time. This spread was actually started as a demo from our class on Whidbey and I don’t like to waste spreads so this took a very looooooong time to come about, little bit at a time.
