Method

Breaking Free is an assemblage/collage constructed from found objects, hardware, and photography. Using old family photographs plus present-day chicken yard photos, I wove the imagery together to assemble a bas-relief collage for this discarded window assemblage.

 

All porous surfaces are sealed with matte medium for longevity.

 

Significance

Breaking Free is about overcoming the fear that was instilled in me in my childhood.
