sculpture or painting? by JoDye

sculpture or painting? by JoDye

So,I kept this pressed paper thing that came with, I think, a bathroom faucet,I don’t remember ,but I liked the shapes and put it with other  stuff I thought was visually interesting. I decided last week to paint it with enamel paint and a screwdriver with my Jackson Pollock inspired drip painting. First with white,then black,then violet, then yellow and then with an old round brush the red daubs.I set it aside for a day and thought about what else I could add.I decided to add string I painted, I used  this technique on another painting,and with a needle I wove a yellow string through the paper thing then wove red string through the paper thing. I then painted the string with black spots and red spots and yellow spots. I can’t decide whether this is sculpture or painting,or just found art.

    The answer to which of those options this falls into is . . . YES. It is what it is . . . whatever that is, but, in fact, does it really matter which it is as long as it is what it is?
