Guarding Infinity

2019011095091447

18X18. Mixed Burlap on wood frame. Paper, acrylic, ink, oil, mod podge, antique iron skeleton keys, 1940s costume jewelry, wire, polymer clay, SOLD. Note: original piece was not crooked, and we’re missing some of the edge work. Buyer sent me photo.

Book of Dreams

20171222_164832

14X16 upcycled scrapbook assemblage: Wood, leaves, twine, tintype, antique trinkets. PagesĀ  heavy “toothy” stock, separated individually by rice paper. SOLD but will contract one more to buyer’s specifications, as I have only a single scrapbook/album to upcycle.

*Note: the three images below are truer to the actual color of the artbook. The top has been “shopped” in an effort to tone down the shine/glare of the tintype, which was tough to for me to accurately photograph in the light. Book is more antique-y, less garish.

Home Is Where I Want to Be

20160712_114624

24X36 Canvas. SOLD but the others I’ve posted are still available. Guest starring acrylic, oil, cloth, ink, watercolor, random glossy cut-outs, crushed mica, embellished antique key, and some pages from a busted 17th century Spanish bible. Focal pages are 1 Corinthians 13. We all know the one:

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

A Few Words from The Hermit Plus Spooky Assemblage

 

Hello. I’ve been a busy girl over the past almost YEAR or whenever since I last wrote. Lots to catch up on, which I may or may not do. If someone blogs this infrequently, it’s safe to say maybe blogs aren’t her bag. For now, I’m going to put up a couple assemblages I recently finished, and remind folks that I am up for selling my creepy stuff and/or designing book covers. I call this beastie “Hermit IX.” He’s acrylic, oil, antique Spanish Bible pages, busted porcelain doll+other toys, Spanish moss, tulle, and heaven knows what else on a 24X36 canvas. Available in his current form or as limited edition framed and matted prints. For more info, contact me via rachelingridrobbins@gmail.com, rather than through the blog. More soon. Perhaps.
