Comp.#11 (Burn the witch)
Sierk van Meeuwen
( 1982 )
The collage is build up in layers with cut-out images from used art books, comics, encyclopedias, etc. Starting with the background for the first layer, building up to the highest parts of the work in the foreground. So despite the flat images the layers create a 3D experience. As you move slightly in front of the work, the upper layers will visually slide over the layers beneath.
The collage comes in a hand made oak frame with museum glass.
The size of the frame is 40x45cm (depth 6cm). The collage is signed on the back.
