Icon- side one

Icon is a two-sided piece. It began with the weathered plywood that I found in the arroyo behind my house in New Mexico. I knew exactly how the piece would look, and built a structure, which was then silver leafed. This piece has a stainless steel stand that allows both sides to be seen. I recently reworked the tarnished silver leaf, to blend with the wood and added palladium to one area that I di not want to tarnish- I want there to always be a flash of bright metallic light in that area. . The silver is intended to continue tarnishing, but the added paladium will not. It has been renamed from One to Icon- recalling those I had seen where one side referred to the other; unification.
