September 3, 2008 Whimsical Collage


"Raining Mud" Another in my second series of collages - these are whimsical, they are not what you might expect andsometimes require a second look. This collage measures 5" x 7", postcard format,and is created with founds papers mounted on 120# watercolor paper. I found pictures of people covered in mud - very unusual - I cut them from their environment and left them floating on a perfect muddy background. The blue faces, very identifiable, force the viewer to look at them first - then later look at the muddy bodies. The two oddities are not similar and create confusion.
