Mixed-Media Wall Sculpture

Created by Heather Campbell
This mixed media assemblage was constructed using antique wall candle sconces, a vintage penny doll and found objects such as beads, Swarovski crystals, marbles, old clock, old picture frames, shells and costume jewelry. Several unique techniques were used to unite this piece using a combination of acrylic paints, crackle mediums, polymer clay transfers, antiquing and gilding.

For some of us, the idea of returning to our past, especially our childhood has a certain push and pull that leaves us wanting. Feelings of belonging and security are comforting but give way to the reality of the present. Memories of happenings good or bad are dusted ever so carefully with a touch of fantasy, and remembrance mixed with nostalgia makes us long for that perception of what once was.
