Arranging the Unarrangeable

"Sheltering in Place no. 13"
mixed media collage with paper, fabric and stitch

"That was what artists did, they arranged the unarrangeable
into something that made sense."    
                                        - Jodi Picoult from
A Spark of Light

That is what I think we all are doing right now as we try to make sense out of this global pandemic.
Even as I write this it seems so surreal.
Life is just currently unarrangeable, at least in the way we are used to doing things.
I think that is what all of my small collages are about.
I am having a hard time concentrating on larger art projects so arranging the flotsam and jetsam
of other artworks and remnants is something I feel I can achieve.
Just like making a small art work is gratifying...a beginning and an end...these collages
allow me to accomplish something in a time when other things resist being arranged.

Be well.  Be safe.
