|Sept. 5 Collage|
mixed media on paper
Notice that these new small collages aren't titled; instead just dated?
I think I am revisiting the idea of making small collages on a regular basis. Probably without the pressure of making one every day but perhaps beginning my studio time with a small collage as a warm-up.
While my original collage-a-day series had lots of recognizable imagery, these pieces are definitely
more abstract and non-objective...not always totally without imagery but leaning toward layering and transparency in the compositions that become more important than any recognizable thing that might also be there.
I have been doing a lot of rusting of papers and those pieces are appearing in the work.
It is black walnut season here on the farm, so eco dyed papers and fabrics will probably be making an appearance
The change in seasons is good for me. I can shift my thoughts and my working time from outdoor work to being in the studio more regularly. At least that is the plan.
I will be taking these small collages to Christkindl Art Fair in Canton in November.
But if you want one now just email me and I will send you an invoice for paypal payment on line.
