About

cardboard, string, modified latex, ink wash, and crayon construction in a modern white frame with AR non glare glass.

15 x 12 inches unframed, 21.5 x 18 inches framed

This abstract, mixed media, white construction was completed by Russell DeYoung in 2009. The cardboard collage tied with string and painted in white and dark blue is reminiscent of the Neo-dada artist, Robert Rauschenberg's, celebrated Cardboard & Cardbird series. Interested in the surrounding environment, DeYoung incorporated ordinary materials around him into an interesting abstract construction, heightening the common detris material into a 'fine art' arena. Collaged layers of white string and dark blue & white painted cardboard creates texture and depth. Parts of exposed cardboard revealed under intentionally chipped paint adds an unusual weathered effect. The collage is framed in a modern white frame with AR non glare glass.

About the work:
Russell DeYoung bridges the divide between the abstracted and the familiar with the editioned prints, Red, White, and Blue, Upstate, which are inspired by the landscape of impermanence and imperfection the artist observes in his living and working spaces in the Hudson Valley and New York. Made in collaboration with Flying Horse Editions of Orlando, Florida in 2009, the edition of ten prints, made of professional grade Art Care cardboard, are modeled to replicate DeYoung’s 15x12 constructions of discarded cardboard, which are stitched with string and painted with modified latex. Through the use of modest scale, a limited palette and plebeian materiality, these works offer an alternative to the bombast nature of recent American culture. Exhibited in pristine white shadow box frames, the work calls attention to forgotten utilitarian objects and an overtly materialistic society.
