source site This month I entered three pieces of 3D Multimedia Art, or found object assemblages in the CAAA Images show: Aries Rising, a Ram’s skull that I had beaded, Window of Opportunity, an old window that I decorated with mosaic glass, and Avenging Angel, an up-cycled concrete angel that I covered in mosaic. I won 2 ribbons, a second and a third. And my Avenging Angel was juried out of the judging. According to the rules, a sculpture cannot be formed from a mold. The angel I used was a piece of a concrete angel created in a mold. I got it form the Medrano Concrete place on Canal Street. I gave Mr. Medrano $40 for a truck load of broken objects that he could not sell because of damage. I got tile, bowls, Moons, Suns, lizards, and the broken angel. She had no wings and her face was cracked. She is missing a hand and broken off below the knees. The original concrete angels had feet, hands and wings. I covered what was left of her with mosaic glass and grouted her. I attached deer antlers for wings and gave her a heart of steel and put a rusty old revolver frame in her good hand. I did not pretend that she was anything except what she was – something that someone else was going to take to the dump.

Tom Lewis’s Damascus Knife was beautiful also. Frank Westfall’s Como se Llama was really well done and it deserved first place in the sculpture category. I think the CAAA is growing and the quality of the work being entered in the shows is getting better all the time.
