“4-H Dreams”

Collage on acid-free mat board, 23” x 18”,

    mounted on black foam, in a narrow

    black frame (no glass)

     

This scene depicts an imaginary family farm with chickens, kids, cows, barn, distant hills, and an old pick up truck with an enormous brown egg. Are the chickens in front bragging? Is that a bar code on the cow back by the barn? This playful collage is meant to amuse. It won 2nd Prize in its class at the 2011 Santa Cruz County Fair.

 

Original collage: $225....

“I am often asked if I work on the computer. The answer is "No." I use paper, scissors, and glue. However, some of the pieces I incorporate into my collages have been digitally created, and all of them involve some form of commercial photographic reproduction and great printing with hi-tech inks on incredible papers--so the question is complicated. However, I Am the Assembler, the creative fuse through which the force works to reposition all these discarded images and old forms into new relationships and meanings. It's not as easy to do as you might think. And it helps if you're a story teller, too.”
