Thanks to the flow chart I posted a few weeks ago, I have lots of finished art this week. From multiple collages to the portfolio I am compiling to send to a few galleries.
Below are six new collages on silver prints. They are each in a window mat and framed 11"x 14", ready for my spring open studio. I could compose and glue these all day long. True story! I have a stack of these photographs so this body of work will continue.
These are photograms I made when I had access to a darkroom. (Ancient history! Am I right?) To put a finer point on it, I would play in the darkroom in between the classes I was teaching at the time. It's a shame to waste photo chemistry. This is a limited body of work because I don't see myself returning to a darkroom to make more photograms any time soon. Framed 11" x 14". Compositions in black and white are in a black frame; compositions with a limited color palette are in a white frame.
Similar but different! These contain more collage and are composed right on the mat board. Framed 16" x 20. At both extremes (top) has some hand painted white lines that mimic the line of the rubber band photogram and is in a black frame. Mick Is In There (bottom) is in a white frame.
A few graphic decisions from my portfolio - all of which are in progress and could be pulled at any moment. The beauty of the digital lifestyle is that nothing is permanent until you hit send. This is a 3-pager, more of a project brief, that contains an overview of the project and a few installation shots. The About the Artist timeline serves as an at-a-glance CV.
