I fragment faces and splice images to reflect the different faces we show different people. My collages are all handmade using paper. I have no problem with digital collage. I just prefer to spend less time in front of a screen.
Mixed Media: This is a blend of collage and oil painting. It adds a challenge to create a unified piece using the two mediums, but the collage comes easier when I have a structure to the collage. In this case, I wanted the dress to reflect what was going on inside this person - the weight she was under. I wanted her body to look correct in the space and to compliment the collage. Neither overwhelms the space.
Daily Collage Project In February 14, 2019, I started a month-long collaging of the Washington Post’s free daily newspaper- the Express. I limited myself to using only the contents of one copy of each day’s issue. I posted the results of each day’s collage every weekday on Instagram (the Express didn’t publish on weekends). These are some highlights.
