This piece was created using soft-core pencil, pastel and graphite on high quality, 300 gsm mixed-media paper. Some of the shape elements are created using hand cut vinyl stencils. The textured colors are created using smudging and color transfer overlay.The art is never representative in the traditional sense in that it is not supposed to look like something specific. Rather it is a distillation or combination of things observed and felt and thought about in the everyday. As a result, some elements are big and bold and textually simple - others are small and detailed and need to be sought out.This work brought to mind small patches of remnant material used for patching torn jeans, thus the name.
