Characters Love Tacoma are mixed media assemblage pieces. Each one features a combination of vintage images selected from books or magazines and hand cut. Each is paired with a modern paper. They are all paired with second use frames that often have a past life patina and a little gritty age showing. Each is finished with a phrase that is hand assembled and plays on the image, giving this little city we love a little tongue in cheek love soaked word play. They are designed to give you a chuckle, do a real live LOL, shake your head, and a chance to think about the person you've seen around town that is exactly that person.
This piece features the actual couple, The Lovings, whose court battle paved the way to legalize marriage equality. It reads: Loving Couples Love Tacoma. It measures: 9.5" x 11.5".
