Sky Fire

This is new work I just took to Trinity Gallery in Lawrenceville (Pittsburgh). I now have 5 pieces there. They have just hired a new publicist, and are getting ready for an opening April 6 of new works by Matt Gatto.
For this piece I pieced together altered fabrics for the buildings, and used fused plastics bags for the “fire” in the sky. I added interesting found objects. At this point I consider telephone books to be “found objects.” They litter our streets several times a year. The paper is very strong, though, and good for stitching and collaging.
The size is 12″ x 12″ x 1.5″
