Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel

8″ x 15″  Hansel and Gretel is a shadowbox work of assemblage. The background is oil pastel blended with linseed oil. The rest is an assemblage of found and created items. The twisted tree is made of wire, the blackbirds are baked clay, and the witch’s house above is comprised of a wire house frame and bits of a Candyland game board.  Hansel and Gretel are a pair of antique dolls, previously packaged together as brother and sister.
