New Outlook?

“New Outlook?” is an original handcut paper/mixed media collage on 5×7 matboard.

Okay, I feel like every day I am talking about a favorite source material. Today’s “favorite” has been a fave for a long time. I absolutely love incorporating corrugated cardboard into my work. The depth and texture is unlike anything else. This photo does not do justice to the depth of this thick piece of cardboard, but trust me, it adds a whole new dimension, so to speak.

The background is a black and white magazine spread of a desolate old graveyard, and the main image is a man, who appears to be behind a wall of some sort. Does he have a new outlook? Or is he just looking out?
