Shades
assemblage of found objects
mostly bones & shells, traces of the long-gone
35 X 36 X 5.5 cm
by Dale Copeland, 2015
There'd been those variations on the '50 shades of grey' title.
The velvety green box seemed to want an array of whiteish objects.
My treasure trove yielded hundreds ... sorting and rearranging to find those that looked and felt best took ages. Finally pleased with the appearance, and what do you call it. 50 shades of off-white? I settled on just 'Shades' when I realised that all the objects are traces of the long-gone.
'Shades' as in the shadows or traces, ghosts if you like, of the dead.
