|"A Calculated Risk"|
mixed media on paper
This is the second in a series of new abstract collages where I am trying to work larger.
Another goal is to avoid using collage images of recognizable things such as people, faces, clothing, trees, etc.
Although I did include a drawing of a rock in the first piece of this series.
I just liked that drawing which was done with craypas. The use of that media allowed or led to using more crayons in the rest of the work...something I like and haven't done in a number of years.
I realize that the geometry of the pieces tends to suggest concrete realities, but that is totally accidental. For example, this piece seems to reference, at least for me, buildings or architecture, which is fine. But I did not set out to make a cityscape or a piece with houses or buildings. That is a by product of my intuitive process.
In titling the piece I also refrained from referencing the architectural nature of the work.
The title is about my process.
You can see this work on my new website in the Mixed Media on Paper and Canvas gallery.
