A blast from the past ...

I was browsing through some of my old artwork today, and I found this.

I attended a wonderful art group a few years ago (it's now sadly no more). One of the many intruiging projects we were given was to create some art inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's work. This is what I came up with; I think I called it "Memories". The photos I've used here are of my grandparents. 

As I'd half-forgotten I did this piece, it was interesting to see how much it's got in common with some of my current work. I think this is where my fascination with using old ephemera and objects with a "history" may have started!  


  1. I LOVE this, Angie. It is wonderful! Are the elements 3D? I am always drawn to art that has layers and textures. This one is very special with the photo of your grandparents and the bits of lace, skeleton keys and stick.
    Very very nice.

  2. Thanks Tammy - yes I think we share a love of textures and layers! Yes quite a bit of it is 3D - real lace, recording tape, twigs and keys, and the semi-circle is covered in string!

  3. Interesting how you have continued "your" style without making a conscience effort to do so. It has Angie written all over it....Nice!


  4. This is lovely! You definitely have a certain style even tho you didn't 'mean to'!

  5. Wow I really do love this piece. You are just so blessed Angie to be such a artist.
    Love always seeing what you are doing and now a little of your past too.
    Thanks for your sweet comment.
    I like you

  6. Bunny and Rona thank you both - it's lovely that you can see a "style" in my work. I always worry it's too diverse!

    Maggie what a lovely compliment - thank you so much!

  7. This is so neat, and I love how we can see the echos of it in your current style!
    Beautiful as is all your work!
