Happy, um, June?… Yes, strangely that’s correct. Happy June!
Welcome to the fourth and possibly final installment (I never know…) of Series 6: The Box Chain!
Today’s offering is a piece I’m calling “Ces Yeux” (“These Eyes” in English). Mais oui.
From a variety of recycling box papers including junk mail, newspaper, old giftwrap, used construction paper, and some old printouts, I made a slew of box chains. I then built the piece by glueing the chains (with carpenter’s glue) in layers in a thrifted wooden picture frame. It took several nights of building the chains, and then playing with them on the floor, before settling on the concept for this guy. In the end, the time spent was well worth it. I’m so pleased with its subject matter, texture, and muted colours.
If you don’t yet know how to make the box chains, there is a detailed picture tutorial in this previous post.
To see the rest of this series (or any other series for that matter), hop on over to the Series page, and scroll down to the bottom to “Series 6: The Box Chain”. Again I wish to thank sweet Kapila for asking the question (“What would Michele do?) that got this series going in the first place.
You have a great day now. I’ll be back on Friday!
