I spent my afternoon at a Soul Collage retreat which was both restful, refreshing and inspiring. I knew my intention was to focus on honoring women whose presence on the planet has influenced me both creatively and also as a woman overall.
Here are the outcomes, including a little collage humor at the bottom.
I included information for you in the captions, in case you are curious who some of these women were/are. Can you see which collage has a pointillism version of me within it?
I was concerned my painting of a woman's unclothed torso might get me "in trouble" with online censorship. So far, so good. I posted this on instagram as a test. No problems yet at all!
I am a writer who respects my writing lineage. Too many literary studies only focus upon the male side of our creative lineage. One of my aims is to bring our Literary Grannies back into our consciousness. I'm Vincent's hair looks ridiculous, but I wanted to bring out that famous black and white photo of her with the magnolias. I learned last Spring that this particular magnolia breed was planted as far north as possible - in Upstate New York and Western Massachusetts - by landscape architect Frederick Olmstead who designed Central Park in New York City and other notable places. Now you know the amount of (not very useful) facts rumbling about my head!
This is an example of my flavor of art humor. I collaged my friend, Cameron Brian, into a broken billboard frame I photographed a while ago. I didn't know how or where I would use that photo and while collaging I couldn't help myself. :~)
