Collage and Books About Collage
Here are two more collages from my Intuitive Collage Process demonstration. Some have been sent to New Zealand for the annual International Collage Exhibition and Exchange. I still have several of them, which are waiting to be listed in my Etsy shop.
Four New Books
Here’s a confession: I am addicted to art books. Can’t get enough of them, ever. What I love is that I can read them through several times and the next time I open one, I see something new or am interested in some aspect of that book that is different from the last time that I read it. My most recent acquisitions have been more collage books! I love to see other artists’ approaches to collage, which is a never-ending source of fascination for me. These are my new books. Three of the four have arrived and I’m still waiting for the last one on this list. I can enthusiastically recommend all of the ones that are here already. Each one has a different style of presentation and approach.
One day I may own a Kindle, but I just can’t imagine that an electronic reader will ever take the place of the smell and feel of a well-loved book.
I want to eventually incorporate more collage into my painted panels. You might have noticed some text in a few of them. Here’s an example:
“Elements 16″ – Acrylic and Collage on Cradled Panel, 8 x 8 x 2”
