Cut and Paste

It started with glue and a pair of scissors. No doubt that technology allows us more ways to channel our creativity through programs like Photoshop, but the origins of my collage work is rooted in good ol’ cutting and pasting. A few reminders of the joy of using mixed media and working with my hands; not the mouse.

I’m in the process of clearing out old magazines, a task that involves tearing out images that I want to keep and rework into collages. I have to hand it to Dali, the original Photoshop master; he knew the art of collage way before its time.
