Killing Beauty

Killing Beauty

Vernita E Nemec AKA N'Cognita. Killing Beauty, 2006.

Description:
Killing Beauty is a segment of an ongoing paper work I began in 2006 entitled the Endless Junkmail Scroll.
It is made from recycled papers as I attempt to make art from materials otherwise discarded. At present, in 2008, it is already more than 300 linear feet and torn into segments as fragments are framed, sold and exhibited. 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, along with my concern for the environment and the importance of recycling, led to my fascination with using envelopes as an art material.
