Collage and assemblage has been creeping into my mind in recent weeks – must be all that Rauschenberg I’ve been looking at. Most of my work for years had some element of collage. There is something about torn paper, repositioned words, flat colors and photos that just grab that graphic image lover in me. In the studio I am trying to not judge my ideas when it comes to my work – so if I think, “I want to put a piece of paper on there,” I do it. If the paper is on there and I want to take it off, I do. I don’t question – and it leads to wonderful (most of the time) little discoveries. This is a work in progress.
