As per my usual way of collaging I start not knowing where it is heading. I just do something to the white page. In this case I started with the dotted blue paper. I then used the small gelli plate to add some paint. I had some small figures that did not go into the recycle bin. Still no idea where the collage is heading. Next I added the words lost angeles, the weight lifter, and finally the stamp. I pulled it all together with some white transfer scribbling and some graphite pencil words and lines. That is it! Now you might ask what does it all mean. I have a thought but what is yours?
Maybe it means that getting back to normal on this planet will mean some HEAVY lifting!
Love the depth created by the large weightlifter figure and the two smaller background figures. Interesting composition, John!
I love this collage and the others this one is especially nice. I am impressed knowing you are making these in not the best of conditions. And yes- I am all over the place and I have vowed to get things about my student that need finishing to finish them.
Magical how it all come together, with your great eye.
