I am continuing to construct collages on suminagashi marbled paper. The concept of time, during the Covid19 pandemic, is strange and weird. I’ve used the word “time” in the titles of these new collages to encourage thinking about various aspects of the collage.
In poetry there are what I think of as “breaths” between words or phrases. The relationships of shapes, lines, colors and spaces in between function in much the same way in the collage. Is it a stretch to say those relationships may act as metaphors which provoke thoughts (memories?) and feelings?
Here is #1366 “Time Will Tell.”
What are your reactions?
Compare it to #1367 “Time-less.”
How are the relationships of shapes, colors and lines different? What is the “flow” or rhythm? How does the movement relate to the marbling?
Here is #1368 “Another Time.”
This is #1369 “Time For…”
The collages were constructed on 22” x 30’” paper. Not small, but not huge. Try to picture that size and think about how near or far you would have to be to take it all in and see the relationships I’m talking about.
This is my wordless poetry.
