HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!! A new work by me!!!

Happy Halloween!  One of my favorite genre’s is the collector and their house as art. In this work I wanted to celebrate visual artists who created something associated with my FAVORITE holiday!

Each panel is 9  by  12  inches. Medium is paper collage.

This is a diptych, a two panel work. As a child I loved to watch the Addams Family so I thought what other art pieces might exist in the house besides the fish with the human leg sticking out.

All artists have been written about on my website!

Pumpkin-   Japanese master Yayoi Kusama.

Frakenstein- Vik Muniz, Frankenstein, caviar monster series. The artist recreated monsters using beluga caviar.

Vampire Mouth- Ruby Sterling

Pumpkin Head Man- Jamie Wyeth

Platinum skull- Damien Hirst

Witches Hat- Robert Therrien

Happy Halloween everyone and try to make some artwork to celebrate the holiday!
