Floating Words

These collages start with a drawing and are layered up with colored papers and gouache.

Floating Words was made after a trip to Savannah with some friends in 2011. During our stay the news broke that a magnitude 9 earthquake had hit northeastern Japan, causing a devastating tsunami. The words & numbers transcribed in the background here are names of the towns hit hardest and the casualties reported.
