"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.
