Art: Hooked on Art

Artist Constance Old experiments with different upcycled materials




Orange Fuzz 1 is part of an ongoing series called "Filling the Void" in which the artist, Constance Old, experiments with different upcycled materials—waxed tissue paper, fruit and vegetable bags, wire-wrapped shoelaces, sales receipts, Austrian “Nicht werfen” packing tape, and surveyor’s tape on a background made from a blue plastic drawer liner.

“The composition always starts as a six-inch-by-four-inch rectangle with an oval in the center,” Old explains of the pieces made using the craft technique of rug hooking. “I keep track of the specific materials used in the piece and itemize them on a sewn tag on the back and then in the legend written below the piece when it’s framed.

An encyclopedic list of the sources allows each piece to function as both ecological commentary and as a time capsule.” Old’s exhibit at The Lionheart Gallery in Pound Ridge, runs from March 4 through April 30.
