This contemporary collage series was a creative exercise using pages from a magazine. My intention was to make some quick shape studies using material readily available. I like how the colors create a mood for each piece and the relationship of the shapes to one another tell a story. Perhaps I will create larger pieces from these in the future.
I keep a lot of things around that I should probably throw out. It's just that my brain immediately asks, "can you use repurpose this into something else?" Perhaps it comes from all the time that I spent with my Grandmother growing up. She lived through the Depression and was very clever about finding uses for things that would normally end up in the trash.
This collection of modern, geometric collage art was born from bits and pieces of fabric that my family and I used at some point. Denim from jeans, cotton sheeting and felt from old craft projects.
