So this is another piece that I was working
in paper with, which I predominately work with as an artist, and another sort of viewpoint
to take on collaging work. Because I was using handmade papers to work and paint and draw
on top of, I was actually collaging them in in a way that was just allowing me a surface
to draw on top of. It’s another way of thinking about collaging. It’s a little difficult to
see in this reproduction, but basically what it means is that it was the same tone paper,
the same type of paper that I ripped and tore and cut on certain edges to make this shape.
And then inside of it I drew the hands that are existing, and they’re on top of the layers
as if it was one cohesive piece of paper. So that was another way of sort of thinking
about collage. Some of these other parts here were made and cut out and placed on top and
then things were drawn inside, and then other pieces were actually laid out on top in collage.
So there are a number of different ways in which you can approach doing a collage piece.
