Fire Opal

7″ x 5″ collage, found paper (de-acidified magazine and catalog clippings) on canvas board. © 2015 Deborah Eater.

I started this collage wanting to give the impression of a gemstone, and the play of light within it, without modeling it after any particular type of stone.  The coloration then decided what type of gem it was.  Even though it’s only a simple subject, if you were to physically deconstruct the collage you’d find many layers of collage.  I spent several weeks intermittently adjusting the tone and the shape before I was satisfied with them.

Sold to John Ivanchenko in 2015.
