A New Collage, “Currents”

September 5, 2010

“Currents” – Collage, 10 x 8″ on brown paper
mounted on 14 x 11″ Bristol board

This collage is created from part of a big sheet of brown paper that I have been keeping around, adding paint to it when working on my panels, using it as a blotter or to clean my brayers. I liked how it started looking without making anything else out of it, but finally got brave enough to cut it to a specific size for a collage.

Today was another sunny, cool, breezy, glorious day. This morning after watering my garden boxes I just sat down in a chair under a tree. The dogs rolled around in the grass and found a sunny spot to lie down for a while. I watched my garden grow for about a half hour, listened to some new bird songs, and drank in the blue sky and the green of the new shoots. It was a wonderful way to begin the day.

    REALLY Love this Martha! You must have cut the perfect place on the paper because it’s just wonderful. The creases from the paper and additional markings you made gives it a lovely geometrical look.

    Glad things are cooling down in your part of the world! 🙂

      Oh thank you, Itaya! I felt those creases needed to be part of the image. And I hope there will be another piece or two on that sheet for potential collages.

    This is so much more than a collage. It is a “document from a forgotten time” or so. I love it. Very romantic!

    I like this one. It looks like an unfolded map by the lines. It’s always nice when you find something you didn’t expect and it fits.

    I love using the “extra” paper as you have to create something new!

    I love using the recycled papers to make new art. I love the story a used paper bag can add to the voice of the new assemblage. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
