Artwork of the Week, 8/24

2015-09-24 15.10.19

Mary Johnson, Self-Portrait

24 x 36″, Acrylic

Mary started this work during summer school, worked on it all summer, and brought it in finished during the first week of school. It’s made up of thousands and thousands of stamps of the eraser on a #2 pencil. Mix acrylic, stamp, stamp, more stamps, repeat approximately 10,000 times. It is hanging in the main window as you come into the art room, so that face is the first thing my students see every single day :)
