“The Look You Want” is an original, handcut paper collage on 5×7 matboard.
Mainly monochromatic, there are some elements of this piece that, I think, play nicely with the random text. “The Look You Want – When You Want It” and “You will be amazed at the exciting change in your personal appearance” work well with the sheep. Advertisers’ claims often try to get us to be like sheep, and follow the herd when it comes to personal appearance.
The funny drawn face, I decided to split in half. The eyes peek over the side and the grin is upside-down in the bottom corner. A bit of handcarved stamping in black ink adds a bit of interest and perceived texture to my little lambs.
