“Leftovers”

January 23, 2010

I’ve posted one of my collages. It is entitled “Leftovers” since that’s what it is. I did a series that I call “Men of EW” because it was made from pictures I ripped out of Entertainment Weekly. Those were all 7×7 inches and were cut square or diagonally with straight lines. Except for one that I did the same size but cut like concentric circles using portraits of Russell Crow and Denzel Washington. “Leftovers” is 8.5 x 11 and made from all the pieces I had left. I wanted to see if I could take what I had and make something out of it. Unlike the others I had no inspiration or plan when I sat down to this, just the challenge of using only what’s available.
