FZ - Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention - Paper collage, gel medium transfer - Framed wall art

Description

"FZ"

Mixed media collage on cardboard, inside a reclaimed wooden picture frame. 23.5" x 25.5"

Frank Zappa's catalog is so large, it takes a dedicated listener to hear all his music. I don't claim to be an ardent fan, but what I loved about Frank was his irreverence, his bull headed determination to do things *his way* and his intolerance for the prudish censors of the Parents' Music Resource Council (aka the PMRC, Google it!). Frank made his art for himself, first and foremost. Whether it baffled, offended or delighted the audience it found... he cared not. He has been a big inspiration.

This piece used a variety of techniques and materials. A method of ink transfer using freezer paper was used for Frank's portrait, while bits of collage and spray paint were used to augment that.

This piece is a solo, never to be produced again. Signed by the artist.

To create my art, I get as many supplies as possible from reclaimed / recycled sources. For example:

The ReSource Yard in Boulder, CO accepts a wonderful bounty of unused or discarded construction materials. Boulder County Household Hazardous Waste drop-off provides me spray paint that people have gotten rid of. Thrift shops are great places to find canvas and frames, not to mention books and records for inspiration... and dumpster diving is always an option if treasure is buried there.

"FZ" began as a beat up frame I found at Goodwill. The cardboard used for Frank's picture was the backing inside the frame.
