Here is the second collage that I did for an upcoming exhibit at the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan – wish me luck! It’s a juried show so I don’t know if these pieces will make it or not.
The collage is a play on words of the title, “That’s the price you pay”. Indeed, that is the price someone paid at some point! I’ve listed all of the countries where these price tags, tickets and stamps are from – I’m just fascinated with how we mark items for sale. The fonts we use, the shape of the tag, the colors – everyone’s got their own way of letting us know how much it’ll cost if we want the item. Don’t even get me started on the “cents” sign – I still mourn its passage!
