Gosh, this is frustrating. I thought by now, I'd have crashed through this stuff, but I find myself avoiding the studio – making a sandwich or writing an email or cleaning the bathroom – anything to not have to work at this frustrating thing they call collage. I can sort of hear all those little pieces of torn paper whining back there when I pass by the open door ... ha. Observations: The switch to black paper has a sort of elegant quality, but feels like cheating. Why does collage almost automatically go figurative? (I'll post a few more examples tomorrow.) Black on black is intriguing. Will push this next.
Greetings and thanks for visiting. I've decided to post my drawings and writings about drawing. Mostly so I can get a feel for the ideas that keep surfacing and how they grow and change over time. Please check in often and let me know what you're thinking.
I live in coastal Virginia and have an MFA from Burren College of Art/NUI Galway in IRELAND. Cheers.
