The birds they sang At the break of day Start again I heard them say Don't dwell on what has passed Or what is yet to be... Forget your perfect offering There is a crack, a crack in everything That's how the light gets in
~ Anthem, Leonard Cohen
A beautifully, imperfect scrap of reclaimed wood is the substrate of this collage. A large knot hole will allow the light to get in. Given the complexity of the wood (truly a one of a kind piece!), few papers were used, but it does feature some Japanese paper and a scrap 'to seek' from a vintage book. The piece also includes acrylic and watercolour paints.
In keeping with the salvaged wood substrate, the sides are unfinished, with bits of paper and paint drips visible. This collage will be best suited to stand on a shelf, fireplace mantle, table, piano...but a sawtooth hanger could be added to this piece if you wish to hang it. Signed on the back, this piece is finished with a matte varnish to ensure protection against fading, discolouration, and moisture. Avoid placing all artwork in direct sunlight.
