The collages are created solely from the images, colors and texts of that day’s newspaper. Each day I extract, redefine, compose and transform the media’s elements. They are paintings with paper, theatrical stages of abstracted color and rhythms, layers that imbue surreal narratives, symbolism hidden in humor, social commentary, cultural irony, and pure visual perception.
The Collage Journal is integrated into my daily life as a meditation, contemplation and daily source of creative expression. Over 3,285 collages reside in over 289 Strathmore books. I have thus-far used 203 self-healing cutting boards, 345 Exacto blades, and 265 glue-sticks.
For the past five years, I have posted each day’s collage and continue to post on my blog and facebook page.
