Inside Out - an assemblage.

The requirements -  to make an assemblage piece with the theme "inside out", using at least one piece of wood and incorporating at least two techniques (apart from gluing and nailing stuff). I transferred a picture to wood (using acrylic matt medium), tapped the tap (no pun intended) into the wood with the help of L'Usband, drilled a hole for the lens, and glued on the rest of the items. Incorporated is an etching of an ant which you will recognise from my Work series, and I attached to the tap five inked perspex etching plates with ants. I seem to still be obsessed by issues involving work. the creative process, and ants.











































Inside Out (assemblage with wood, paint, transfer, dry point etching, collage, perspex etching plates, brass tap, glass lens and keyboard letters).

I love everything about this piece, especially the nats! I have just purchased an ant necklace from Lady Muck of Whitstable- you can see on FB if curious. Ants are so intriguing, I think that we quite possibly were ant sisters in a former life. Anyway, job well done, this piece is awesome!
you get a whole bunch of stars!

Thanks, Colleen! - and thank you for the inspiration re. the inked-up perspex plates!
Linda Sue - thank you for always being so appreciative! Hahaha, I like "for ant's sake".

So unique and idiosyncratic. The faucet on the bottom is especially fun.

Yes, Linda Sue knows ants. She sent me a bunch of little black plastic ones. I put them in a jar until I can decide where they should go next.

Wow, Ms Anairam, this is a wonderful surprise! Yes, ants seem very appropriate. PS. Love the bit of a collaboration with L'H !
