I have been doing a lot more collage and assemblage work.
June 12, 2004
Lots going on in my life. We are moving to a new house. Maybe I'll get all of my art stuff organized. Yeah- right....
Collage. I have become interested in collage. And assemblage.
Collage, decollage, decoupage, assemblage, sculptural assemblage, montage, photomontage- up to and including altered book art and altered 'other stuff' art. I'm still wandering about in the quagmire of definitions for this stuff.
I had been playing with the 'altered stuff' concept for a while. Then I saw some collage work by DJ Pettit. I know her from the New Idea Exchange yahoo group. I find her work quite inspirational. We don't really have similar styles, but I love her approach to materials. She was the one who got me interested in all the Golden gel mediums and molding paste and glazes and lots of other cool stuff. Thanks DJ. :)
DJ was using her OWN artwork- drawings, paintings, photographs, her own personal stuff in COLLAGES. Wow! Why had that never occurred to me?
