My house is filling up with paintings and drawings, so I have made some smaller pieces. There is a photo below of my process — or really my desk in the middle of my process really. When I do collage, I rummage through a big box of clippings that I collect and pull out things that interest me. Then I go through the pile and pick out things that will work together. After that I exacto out the shapes I want and start to arrange them on the piece… it doesn’t usually stay this way, the work evolves as I go. I am finding smaller works to be a bit more challenging because you have less room… and have to stop sooner. Perhaps it means more discipline… which is good for my process right now.
