art ala cARTe – daily art – “Framed”

“Framed” is an original, handcut paper collage on 5×7 matboard.

I do love the beard guy in this piece. He is echoed by the large mustache on the other gentleman, but the main focal point, to me, is the use of old Kodak film to “frame” the images. Other photos, and a piece of a gold frame round out the piece.

Aside from the film, which was tucked into an old photo envelope, chock full of negatives and film processing ads, the other unique vintage find is from a set of Chicago Cubs baseball playing cards. Each card features a player or broadcaster, and is a trip down Memory Lane for this transplanted Chicago gal.

*Note: “Framed” is the name of the piece – the piece itself is being sold “unframed.”
