Ever wanna destroy something beautiful?

in progress. deconstructed nagel.2009.

This is a work in progress. I'm not done playing yet! As you can tell... from the very bad picture... It's still rough around the edges. Did I really take a Nagel Lithograph and cut into little pieces? Yes and NO. After moving things around last week and breaking a frame, I came across this, along with a bunch of other prints, very old Lithograph/Print (once a very expensive gift) that had been torn and shredded from several moves that I had made over the last 10-15 years. You know the frame had broke and it was packed badly etc. Torn, faded and far from it's original luster it was fit for the rubbish pile. But I didn't want to toss it out. So after some consideration, and a few ideas later I decided to have a go at creating something out of destruction. Snip snip, cut cut, Voila! Anyhow, I will post some better pictures once I'm done playing...

Here's what she's supposed to look like... sort of?

Not quite the same. In reality the colors were never this vivid. Granted my photo quality is for s**t, but I assure you my original has a little different coloring.
