I AM FOOTBALL: AN ARTIST’S OVERVIEW

This piece was created to capture the excitement and energy of American football. It was also a timely piece to celebrate Super Bowl LII which happened in Minneapolis Minnesota, in February 2018. It is part of the ‘I Am’ series which looks at themes that have been pivotal to my life as an artist, as well life in Minnesota over the last 5 years.

Football has been something that has been important to my family for as long as I can remember as a little girl. Growing up a Vikings fan was something I strongly identify with, and I always look forward to game day when my entire Minnesotan family decks themselves in purple and gold and eats the food necessary to ‘consume the enemy’!

What is special about this piece is that it incorporates all 32 NFL teams which are highlighted in various ways using photographs, cartoons, illustrations and text. Some are cryptic, and some are hidden, but all are equally represented.

Surrounding the football player in the background is the skyline of downtown Minneapolis which incorporates key buildings, icons and namesakes.

The original artwork measures 48” x 48” and was completely constructed of papers: some glitter, some foil and many handmade, gathered from countries all over the world. Each piece is hand cut and layered together to create the main image, as seen here in this limited edition, reproduction print.
