I love art deco and I love rust and erosion. I really love this piece.

Karen said...

This has such a landscape feel to it. I really like this one alot! Your newer work is pretty inspiring.

San said...

Hybrid, that's a good word to use here, Paula. Intricate, organic meets simplified, geometric. Harmonious.

yeah last spring my work was shown with two other artists at the gallery, a speaker who is 'somebody' in the art community in vt said: ...'McCullough assembles photographs, puzzle pieces and metal mesh into cohesive works that bridge contemporary life with its industrial past" '....These works mark a new era of artistic innovation, as discussed by Ric Kasini Kadour, Vermont editor of Art New England. Kadour believes these works are uniquely collectible, as they mark a defining moment - the intersection of the Industrial Age and the Information Age.'
pretty cool eh?

Fabulous! Wonderful combination. I was wondering when we'd get to see a ring in your work. And again, I love the shadows cast by your wall sculptures.

hey nellie, you haven't seen me do this before? more rings It is a new direction though, at least it feels like it.

kate said...

This is really an eye-catching piece. When I look at it, I think of the ring as earth and a presentation of the continents and the oceans, with the browns representing mountains.

Sheesh! How did I miss the other ones? There's so much fabulous art to see on your website to which I go often to peruse.
