Normally when I create an assemblage, if it's covered, it's generally done so in glass. However, on this latest piece I decided to design it so that the viewer (AKA: the art buyer...hopefully) would have to open the box in order to see, so to speak, what there is to see. The interior of this piece is centered around 24 mini collages (duo duodenas is Latin for two dozen--or at least that's what the translator website told me) arranged in a grid pattern. In my perusal of various art-related websites I've been drawn lately to grid-centered design, so this is my take. The substrate is an old 10 X 8 X 2" wooden cigar box. The original box was a 1-lidder; I split the lid in two for my work. The piece is meant to hang on the wall, but I suppose it could just as easily be displayed on a horizontal surface.
