"Exilio" Reefer Madness

Zechariah Swartz's avatar Zechariah Swartz

Framed in Hollywood (handmade), Just like the movie Songwriters often attempt to pen a "Song for the Times"; as a visual artist, my goal was to construct a "Piece for the Times". A new genre (oil on leaves) that reflects the process of cultural & social self awareness, which so heavily influences Art and Perceptions. This is a "one-off", as I usually make pieces incorporating real 4 leaf clovers, verses these kind of leaves. Creativity for me is unique self expression, Having 1 unique thing, demands unique approaches & solutions... IE Creativity (it expands upon itself this way). The multilayered presentation is a physical exemplification of the influence graphic design contributes as an innovative technology. Construction -> Deconstruction -> Reconstruction. If you review this piece please share with fellow creatives, this style is very marketable with an abundance of prospective themes. The piece is 4 layers of glass, cased in Lexan and epoxy. Est. weight is 65 Lbs. Thank You Kindly & My Best
