Addicted to Collage

May 14, 2010

Seriously, collage is becoming an addiction for me. It’s a medium that fits in nicely with my other work in the studio, and sometimes even inspires my larger paintings. I enjoy the fact that I can mix photographic elements and hand-painted and drawn passages in the same work of art. I can work on them while waiting for the paint and mediums to dry on my large panels, because there are times when all I can do is wait. It’s a wonderful way to keep creating.

This is a continuation of the Passageways Series. My criteria are that the formats are all 5 x 7 inches, all the colors are earth colors in a limited palette, and the imagery is abstract.

“Passageways 6″ – Collage, 5 x 7”

There is something therapeutic about sorting through choices of shapes and textures to create a composition. If I were a poet, I might love doing the same thing with words.

I’m usually using newspaper photos, magazines, or photo images in combination with diferent paper materials and colours / watercolor, acrylic…/ Dimension is differs from 19 x 29 cm to 90 x 120 cm.

    When I look at it a little longer, the space opens up and it becomes 3D.
