Illustration Friday: Tribal Idol

The theme for this week's Illustration Friday is "Reverse." Such a theme immediately brings to mind my Topsy-Turvy series. This is an ongoing project in my life. I have displayed two solo exhibits (one in 2006 and one in 2010) of these works. Each work of art from this method may be hung either side up to create a new image and refresh the work so to speak. These works deal with comedy and tragedy, opposite forces, cause and effect, etc.

  1. I always thought a good way to hang these for a show would be to put them on a rotating bracket, that way the art becomes interactive, and the audience can see the art from any direction.

  2. I agree. When the next Topsy-Turvy show is booked, I'm going to experiment with hooking some frames up with lazy susan fixtures. I've wanted to for a minute but too man projects at once!
