Fine Art Fragments – Let the adventure begin
Davinci Fragment Art - mystery codes?, secret meanings?
My finished Art Pieces (referred to as ‘Finals’) are made up of several components.
Backgrounds - First, I create hand-made Backgrounds that are; hand painted, collaged panels with reproduced Historic prints or maps and pages from antique books. These Backgrounds will be collected/grouped into Themes. They will also be available in several sizes; 8x10, 11x14, 16x20, 20x24, special. This will affect how many Fragments will fit each Final.
Fragments – Second, I create ‘giclee’ quality prints that are further ‘hand embellished’ and assembled into my ‘Fragments’. These small ‘brick like’ 3D Art pieces are made up of several layers; prints, foam board, cracked & spackled edges, different thickness and sometimes added pieces (found items). Again I offer different sizes (these are approximant); 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, 8x10 Canvas, special. All of these maintain the highest muesem quality, acid-free products … except for the ‘found items’ which are aggressively ‘sealed’ before they are used.
Framing – Third, I frame many of my pieces. Because of the 3D quality, these pieces do not always fit beneath glass when framed. I will create both, but, for a glass enclosure the moulding needs to be very ‘deep’ … this can increase the final cost.
Secret Code – Finally, I add a ‘secret message’ to each Frag. This can be part of my secret code stuff (DaVinci Code like??) … or, more often, the messages are personalize for my customers … the messages evolve form the Art choices and information I get from them. EX; if a Client seeks a Spiritual piece, loves local churches, is willing to quote a favorite scripture … I’ve got potential ‘code’.
