"The truth is rarely pure and never simple." --Oscar Wilde
I just finished this piece; the dimensions are 20 X 12 X 5". It all started with an old Purity brand cigar box, and I took it from there. The compartment on the right side of the piece is equipped with interior lighting, which creates a sort of "peep show" effect. Unfortunately, the lighting doesn't show well in photos.
Below is a shot of the right side with the compartment cover removed.
I don't know about you, but I often (almost always during the school year when I'm teaching) feel like I'm going to lose it. I have those moments when my heads feels like it's about to come unscrewed. This, I guess, is my homage to those moments. Some people seek therapy--I do art.
The piece was created in an old drawer. The assemblage includes a vintage photo (decapitated, of course), found objects (including a porcelain doll head and piano parts), vintage paper, and an old book cover (the inner lining).
Upper, middle, and lower detail shots are shown below. The dimensions are about 17 X 4.5 X 4".
