This joyous guitar turned out as i wanted it. I wanted guitar reminiscent of the 70's. Off course this meant being psychedelic in colour (without the weed).
Inspired by the lyrics of john denver from " this old guitar", the joy from his song also brought joy to me. I do mosaics and i love mixed media incorporated in my work. I like to use objects that i have collected and find objects in op shops and swap meets. It is so exciting to find things and stash them away for that special project.
I like to re-use rather than consume new - so it is the ethic behind my work. The guitar was given to me by my dad. The guitar was functioning, but the bar that holds the strings came off and we couldn't glue it down, although we tried a few glues. In the end off it came, along with the strings and wella an art piece. In november 2020 i entered it into the mosaic association of australia new zealand (maanz) wa exhibition.
8 people chose it as best exhibition an exhibition of 46 works.
