Magazine Paper Art Mail Swap

A fost o incercare grea pentru mine, nestiind cum sa abordez aceasta tema, ce anume pot sa transmit. M-am jucat pur si simplu cu paginile din brosura AVON, le-am decupat, le-am lipit 8-10 intre ele, le-am facut suport pentru colaje, straturi de gesso, imagini si gel medium, acrilice metalice, stampile, creioane cerate si tus negru.

Am vrut ceva spre Steampunk dar straturile succesive de acrilic au acoperit partial imaginile. A rezultat o carte postala masculina dar cu 2 parti ce evidentiaza un om (mai degraba absenta lui) si viciul sau (cartile de joc). Intrebarile care au inceput sa ma framante - Cand devine o pasiune viciu? Recunoastem momentul? Ni-l asumam stiind ca ranim pe cei apropiati sau intram intr-o stare alterata a constiintei, in care tot ce facem ni se pare justificat? Pana cand pasiunea este "normala"? 
Poate ma framant prea mult?!

It was a hard try for me, unknowing how to manage this type of collage theme, which I have to express in this paper art swap. I've used magazine paper from an AVON catalog, photos from another, stamps, acrylic paints, metallic paints, crayons, India ink. I really glue the 8-10 magazine paper in between and it came as a masculine postcard form, but with 2 fronts, facing a man (his absence, mainly) and his vice (playing cards). 

When I've finished it, I have my mind set up on the questions: When did a passion become vice? Do we recognize the moment? Do we have an altered state of consciousness and all we do is just justified? When a passion is still "normal"?
