Work in Progress – Updates to a Collaboration with Angela Oaks

I was so delighted with the package my friend artist Angela Oaks recently sent from Boulder, Colorado. It contained her latest additions to the collaboration we’ve been working on: a series of mixed media paintings on found fabric samples. Below are some images of the pieces so far. Updates are here: http://elishasarti.com/tag/mirror-numbers

At the center of each swatch we’ve added a shape made from a mirrored number. We’re using those shapes to showcase various images inspired by the numbers as well as by (now-amusing) words like Petrol, Group I from the small labels in each swatch’s corner that were once used to catalog the fabric.
