Nothing Up My Sleeves
‘Nothing Up My Sleeves’, 5″x7″, collage, by Alex Feliciano
Alex starts with geometric patterns of color paper. Combining, cutting and patterning happens and pieces start to emerge. Those pieces give rise to a subjects that are cut and painted, a few rabbits, dogs, birds, beards, a dozen eyes, noses, hands, heads, lips, teeth, and hair styles. They are ready to be mixed and detailed with paint and ink. The pieces are embellishes, layered, and sealed on to a block of birch wood.
