Reading the free daily paper is a good way to pass the time while riding the metro, but these free papers are most often just discarded as people leave the train and wind up on the floor, to be trampled upon by other passengers.
Les dernières nouvelles (28×28 inches), is a mixed media drawing on mylar. In this instance, I have used oils and charcoal on the front side of the mylar and oil sticks and newspaper collages on the back side of the mylar. In this instance, the integration of haphazard collages of newspaper is meant to suggest litter.
