A truly curious l'objet d'art. A tool to meditate on the ironies of late capitalism. A daily reminder of an unrealized resolution. A fiduciary magic 8-ball to aid in the practice of papyromancy.
I've long considered my "shake jar" of unusable scraps more compelling than the collages themselves. Now I'm extending that experience to you, dear collector, by packaging up my leftovers. The six jars available this year represent about a decade's worth of work and waste. Expect the addition of one or two jars a year to this "open edition" as I tidy up the studio at each year's end.
Sealed commercial pint jar with currency oddments. Currency collage, letterpress, and pen on printed Avery labels and Fabriano Ingres paper. Signed by artist... three titled WASTE NOT, three titled WANT NOT dated 2018. 3 3/4 x 4 x 4 inches.
