Ana Serrano - Cartonlandia

acrylic,collage, and mixed media on cardboard - 62x48x54 inches

This is just incredible on so many levels(ha ha). I love stacked cities and they've been showing up a bit lately - I think this one is extraordinary though. I'm working on a large landscape painting loosely based on my Stumplopolis drawing (below). I measure the worth of my art by how my 3.5 year old son reacts to it. He's always loved Stumpolpolis and was sad to see it go to it's new home - I recently borrowed it back for a show so I had it in the studio for a few days - he couldn't take his eyes off it. He loves Ana Serrano's piece even more and that's worth more than a good review in Art Forum.
