Time and Space, a mixed-media collage, measures16"X20". Using a stylus and working on a soft surface of stacked newspapers, I embossed aluminum foil with random patterns. After spreading acrylic gel across 300-lb. watercolor paper, I added 2 pieces of foil, pressing them into the wet gel. While the gel remained wet, I stamped it with other textured items, then added paper printed in a foreign language. After the gel dried, I added transparent and opaque acrylic paints, using opaque white to create a platform for the focal point, where three rectangles of magenta were added as a last step.
