Camouflage by GJ Gillespie. 
Collage. 30 x 12 x 2.5 inches. 2018.

On a hike in October I found a piece of camouflage in the sand of Icicle Creek.
It is the kind of ragged camo cloth that special forces soldiers use to make themselves invisible.
The figure is an ancient Greek statue design I've used before. The Fred Myer ads will soon be extinct, giving the art piece a period resonance. Trees are based on a Matisse landscape. Title alludes to a series by Andy Warhol.
