3SIXTY5 #42 for May 18, 2010: Philosophical Elephant
In rushing to complete this piece, it appears I glued things down a little awry from how they were laid out--the vertical elements behind the elephant seem a bit askew, and his trunk is bumping into the border. *sigh* The hazards of collage. Many of the elements are print-outs, I could redo the entire piece. Ha! like that's going to happen any time soon!
Edward Gorey named his house in Yarmouthport, MA, "Elephant House" and collected items that he felt resembled elephants. One of my eventual goals is to visit it, now known as Edward Gorey House and converted into a museum of his work and life. But not this year!
