Recently I have been spending a lot of time making collages. I like the idea that I am able to make art without using up a lot of physical resources. I also like the idea that I am not only recycling paper, but recyclying images – including a lot of my own. What I mean by that is that in addition to using paper from packaging material, junk mail, old documents, etc., I am also cutting up a lot of old sketches, gallery invitations, photocopy documentation of old artworks, etc. It’s letting me reinvent the original images, while “taking stock” of what I have produced over the years.
All the images below are 10x15cm. Most are from 2012-2013.
