Kiss Each Other
10"X10" torn paper collage high heel on gallery wrapped canvas
Most of the time I separate my collage work into torn paper and hand painted paper categories. An example of a torn paper from magazines, is one of my son, Eric HERE and one of hand painted papers would be of Rocinante, a horse collage HERE.
But in this high heel collage I have combined the two methods of collage application where in the bow and the heel I've used some metallic papers that I had painted and the rest of the collage is torn magazine paper. In the background above the heel in the corner are some papers that I've printed of numbers of cleaning tags saved, pasted and copied to make personal collage pages to use.
Weird, obsessive, or you must save a lot of stuff and yes to all the questions but also another method to add your own personal marks to your collages.
I began this collage in December and Christmas got in the way. I demonstrated some of the techniques at my collage presentation for the Pecan Plantation Art Guild on January 13 and last night finally glued on the last pieces to dry overnight and today maybe the varnish coat.
The title? Kiss each other was a phrase from an old book and I placed it under the heel, hard to see but a nice surprise when you look closely. Be kind, play nice. Kiss and make up.
