After a hiatus of over ten years, I recently returned to collaging. In addition to using magazine photos, I now incorporate pieces of my old gouache, acrylic, and pastel paintings and intaglio prints and add ink and paint in my work.
"Is anything real?"
During a Saturday workshop in San Francisco in 2006, I created the five 9"x12" Soul Cards shown above. Without reflection, we selected images that appealed to us from piles of magazine photos spread on the floor, then took them to a quiet corner and arranged them on construction paper until they somehow felt "right."
