Repurposing Myself

I’ve been working with collage in combination with drawing and painting for the past year. It’s been exciting to think about shape, color and form without also thinking about rendering stuff: trees, clouds, shorelines, etc. I often work on paper in my plein air landscapes and so have started adding torn sections from paintings to the collages, repurposing one work to make another. Then I decided to take it a step further: I have some boxes of artwork and papers from my early childhood. Now those papers are making their way into the collages. Comparing marks I made when I was 4 to marks I’m making now is very engaging.

There’s a separate category you can get to from my Home page of the site, showing more of the collages.
