Bulletin board - collage on paper. Original collage 6X6" is matted to 16X16".
Prints of different sizes are available on paper, canvas, metal and acrylic.
Collage has a long history as a folk art before it emerged as a fine art in the twentieth century, In Europe, Asia, and the Americas, all kinds of materials were transformed into mementos and decorations: pictures made of matchsticks; portraits silhouettes cut from paper and framed; fancy paper Valentines garnished with bits of lace and cutout papers; and pressed flower arrangements.
In the early 1900s, the modernist avant-garde adopted collage as a medium, making it an integral part of the evolution of modern art.
I look at collage elements as a puzzle which I have to put together, I move collage elements - images and papers; add paint and line work with crayons until I fill that I achieved some harmony and the pieces just feel right together.
