These collages are the newest addition to my work. The collages are created by layering a variety of paper including tracing paper, vellum, Japanese paper, painted paper, Thai paper, Nepalese paper, and pages from antique German books. The base of each work is part of a 1918 music reel which create the lines and dots in the collages. This connection to music brings a code like visual to the collages. I look at these lines and dots as a code, or more of an early technology and coding that came way before computers. These codes encrypted in the antique paper creates a relationship between the past and today's world. All collages are mounted on an 8"x 10" linen sheet of paper.
More collages on the way!
