Simulacrum


Continuing with the art show, here are a few of the pieces from the "Simulacrum" theme.  The one on the left is called "Chinese Food (1,000 year old Granola Bar)" by Tim Keneipp from our group.  Next is "Arizona" by Laura Cohen-Hogan.  The triptych is my piece (close-up below) and the one on the right is "Lost Luggage" by Marilene Farmer.

My piece is composed of these three photos.  The original photo was of a cut out shaped like and elephant in a rusty sheet of iron.  There were many cut outs in the iron piece but I was drawn to the elephant.  I photographed it with blue sky showing through the opening and rusty metal forming the shape.  I then manipulated the photos using several different techniques to get these three versions.

You are becoming a master of digital manipulation techniques. Or is a mistress of DM? Or a madame of DM? I get so confused.

Wow! Love that you are part of an art show. And love your triptych - the title of your piece is so creative.
