Some of my recent work is currently in the exhibit “Collected Memories” which just opened at Mary Tomas Studio Gallery, Dallas.
The operative word for this group of work is “re-purpose.” Same as “re-cycle.” Your choice. I have selected parts of my earlier collagraph and monotype prints, cut them up (yes!) and combined them to make a collage.
collagraph – a permanent collage of materials, inked and printed. Original.
monotype – a one-of-a-kind print from an image drawn or painted on a plate such as plexiglass or metal. Original.
These collages incorporate parts of my digital photographs from the ongoing “Underfoot” series. The photos capture street markings from many different cities. I like their abstract quality.
This is one such photograph.
Here is the combined photo + collage
As part of the collage.
Here are a few more pieces in the show.
The lines, textures, shapes and colors of the “Underfoot” photos play off against the same qualities found in the collaged segments of prints.
Relationships – that’s what it’s about. And, serendipity. And, not getting hit when I stand in the street taking pictures.
The exhibit runs through June 9. Catch it if you can.
