Two New Collages

May 5, 2011

Storm's Aftermath - Collage, 5 x 5"

Perhaps the creation of this collage “Storm’s Aftermath” was a visceral response to the events of last week.  It wasn’t a conscious reaction, but  Seth Apter suggested in a comment that this might happen, and I agreed with him.

Then there is a second one that I did on the same day. Here it is, titled “Below Water Level.”

Below Water Level - Collage, 5 x 5"

Yes, there was flooding here after the storms, most of it down near the River, but not a threat to our neighborhood. I’m glad we’re on high ground.

    These are so clever, especially like “Below water level”. Really interesting examples of how effective strong composition and restricted palette can look. I hope that your storm season will soon be over.

      Thank you, Sandra! I love using a restricted palette, especially one that includes a lot of black.

    yes – these absolutely make me think of flooding, dark water, landscapes. Glad to hear you’re well and not floating away.

    I love these 2! They’re very alive, & there’s something elemental about them. My eyes just wanted to inhale them.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
