Lots of Very Significant Memorabilia (“All the silly sightless people came and looked and called it junk.”-Shel Silverstein) (badly documented)

2020, papers, fabrics, beads, holes, thread, photos, pencils, inks, etc. etc. etc…..77 x 41 inches. BADLY DOCUMENTED.

I am a collector of very important papers that are significant and make sense  to me. Sadly, I have to be realistic that these bits might not be as important to others.  All the papers in this artwork have stories that make up my memories  of who I am.    Sometimes I  get to a point where I feel less emotional about my collected papers and am not necessarily happy to get rid of them, but don’t want to covet them any more. This artwork took many many years to complete. At first I wanted to make it more of a drawn artwork, but the paper didn’t work with the drawing materials, so I had to resort to collage.  I will not tell a lie, this artwork was laborious and tedious to make until I got to the end bit when it finally came together. I don’t know how long this took to make, but it seemed endless!!!
