“time is a fickle mistress”

the art form i create the most, hands down, are collages. there is something oddly satisfying about take images out of the original context and manipulating them into something gloriously new & surreal. the above image is not the finished piece {i haven’t unpacked that from one of the many moving boxes yet} but i still find the “layout” copy compelling enough to share.  it is a composite of 6 separate pieces all, i believe, which came from national geographic.  below is an image i created close to 5 years ago–a composite of 7 individual pieces.  what i find absolutely fascinating is that, despite the years that separate them, there is quite a lot of similar iconography incorporated: the woods {at night}, images of light in the darkness {either as a star field, or as tangible light sources}, goddesses, a voyeur indirectly engaging the audience {the person behind the wheel in the top image, the giant eye below}.  the only icon missing {that i often use in my painting or sketches} is the raven/crow. make of this what you will, but to me, i feel as if these are pieces that speak to liminal dream space. to worlds we can only enter via sleep or our imaginations.

  1. Man, no kidding. Those are really, really nice, B. You have some serious creativity. What do you do with these once you are finished making them?
