Part of the print album UFO (Unknown French Object).


When I began working on this series I had worked out two backgrounds which contained the letters U, F and O and a color range of red, white and blue, which got me to the title of the series: UFO - Unknown French Object.
This piece contains the original ghost print of the background.
Missing was the French Object, visually something horizontal was needed. This led to the idea of using an image of the Eiffel Tower.
With that plan in mind, one day I walked down the street and there it was: a discarded photo poster of the construction process of the Eiffel Tower from empty lot to finished structure, perched on a pile of trash. Just the right dimension for my piece. I took it home, traced over the image of the structure, enlarged it slightly in a copy machine and fashioned a paper cut-out of the tower with my xacto blade.
Now I had a usable paper template of the Eiffel Tower, ready to be incorporated in the UFO pieces. The rest developed from that point of departure - which in turn led to an element of travel and spanning the world, perhaps the universe and galaxies - here, there, anywhere you wish to be.
