Redux 2

The Redux series continues, however, the medium has changed slightly: I am now making collages. Using a ‘background’ which comprises of  an old painting, I  apply torn or cut paper from previous works on top.

There are plain pieces as well for contrast, but I find using old works adds a great deal of vigor and depth. I am trying to let at least some of the base layer work to peek through. So far there is an animal image(s) in each one.

Collage seems to be a gateway to a higher level of abstraction. Several have a feeling of jazz : there’s short staccato like strokes and lots of movement.

I’ll be continuing in this direction for the near future.
