RUSTED WALL

Acrylic paint on laser etched/cut paper, plastic
6" x 9" x 3" deep
The wall and windows look foreboding.
It's possibly a factory, or even a prison.

The colors and textures of the stains on the wall make it interesting to look at.
The single light inside tempts you
to look closer into the windows...
at least that is what I was going for.

FALLEN LEAVES

This piece also has a light that can be
turned on to add another layer of
interest

The leaves on the sill are birch tree pods

WATCHING TV


Laser cut paper and acetate, resin details.
3" x 6" x3" deep
There are small LED lights inside that can be
switched on to make it look like light from a
television set.

This is another effort to incorporate tactile
details to a subject that I would otherwise
just paint on canvas or paper.

Bulldog cafe from Rocketeer

 
This vignette depicts the icons from the movie: The Bulldog Cafe and the GeeBee plane. It was built to 1/4" = 1' scale. The Bulldog lifts off to reveal an interior.
