Piece by piece and layer by layer. Bye, bye suminagashi marbling (for now), hello acrylic painting on paper. This will be the base layer on top of which I will construct a new collage. It will go from simple to complex. As you scroll through the images, slowly and thoughtfully (I hope), here are some questions to ponder. You might find them simplistic but here they are, anyway.
- What are the similarities? Differences?
- Do you see relationships of color, line, shape, texture?
- Is there one focal point or several? What connections are there from one area to another?
- What difference does the change in orientation of the central collage make?
And now, the collages!
Here is the “process” sequence.
First, acrylic painting on paper.
Next layer, monotype added.
After that, collage of sun prints + photos.
A few more collage elements and voila! The completed collage.
The same sequence occurs in #1392 and #1393.
Here is another group with the same layering sequence except that the orientation of the central collage of sun prints and photos is vertical instead of horizontal.
Now, leave all the dissecting and analyzing behind. Go back, look at the completed collages and have FUN! Think “joyfull”, “playfull.” Have a romp! I did!
