Vernita E Nemec AKA N'Cognita. Brooklyn Blues, 2005.

Description:
Part of a series of "Security Collages" made from recycled papers as I attempt to make art from materials otherwise discarded. It is a 3-D Collage of security envelopes fragmented, burned, torn and painted. My mother and uncles, all artists, used to sketch on the backs of envelopes, which led to my fascination with using envelopes as an art material.

Medium:
Mixed Media
