A Little Abstract

I've started a new line of collages which have gone up on Etsy over the past week or so. I think of them as two-layer collages. The base is a photograph which I have taken at some point and then printed to an A4 size, either with a small border or filling the whole page.

The second layer is the collage stage where I use the materials I love working with to create a secondary picture above the original, working with it at the same time. A compliment and contrast method, if you will.

I'm having a lot of fun with them but it's really hard choosing which photographs I want to use to begin with. After that it all seems to fall into place. I have a couple of other projects going and I am still taking my information out to places for consignment.

  1. Hey, I like these--they're looser and freer than some of your other work. I love the way you use cut-out words; it makes me read them and the juxtapositions are interesting.
