Saatchi Collage Showdown Continues

Thanks to everyone who voted for my collage in the Saatchi Collage Showdown. It made it to the next round of judging! There were 1960 submissions and now it is down to 300.

I've made a lot of work I've yet to post here. Above is Anonymous Woman No. 26. This piece was very exciting piece for me to put together. I have loved gold forever - in clothes, in makeup, in paint, in leaf, in fashion, in Byzantine anything. But this woman in particular felt very familiar. She reminds me of my mom in the early 1960s. And I think I've had tops just like this one. I enjoyed combining it with the illuminated manuscript, in general an anonymous art form and where you don't expect to find the Babe.
