collage 2024

It has been a few years since he has actually done anything in collage.  He keeps thinking about it but has just never gotten to it, ending up devoting most studio effort to painting or drawing. He continues collecting trash/litter off the street and tosses it in a basket with the junk mail as potential collage material, but for some time, when the basket is filled, it just goes back to the trash (in the designated can for the sanitation workers instead of onto the street) ...

Maybe now, at least for awhile, he'll use the material to make art (again) as indicated below. Feel free to return to this page to monitor anticipated progress.

This first group consists of litter afixed with white glue to stretched remnants of a disgarded pondslime green made-in-China 100% pure polyester shower curtain retrieved from the curb where it was all wadded up. He likes the way it glistens and glimmers variously in the light.

Here ends the set of compositions on the green shower curtain remnants.  He ran out of that material -but there is likely to be other stuff just as crappy in collage features to follow (scrolling down) :


*****

for instance: An example would be this next piece - comprised of misc litter mounted with painting & drawing media added in places on a charred plywood fragment from demolition following a neighbor's kitchen accident. A handy feature of this untitled piece is that it is reversible, 20x 18", '24.

note: Side B was never intended as homage to Yayoi Kusama. Although it's alright if you think so, but if one actually did, s/he would be reading too much into it, so you know.

untitled anomalous floor piece / found objects + impacted grime patina, 6x 6" (approx)

This next piece is also reversible + it is a diptych, untitled / comprised of a child's found drawing in crayon & pencil on typing paper attached by blank sticky labels to a sullied piece of cardbord from the studio floor, approx 11x 17" overall. This piece is unsigned. It wouldn't be right, although I suppose it would be OK to sign the carboard half. - Probably it is questionable if this is even a collage. Maybe it could be classified as an assemblage. It would be a waste of time to quibble.
