Collage

Once in a while, I get into a "collage" phase, usually inspired by found objects and/or other materials I happen to have on-hand. I hcurrently have an idea for a collage-based project that I hope to have time to undertake in 2023.....stay tuned!

Selected Paint Skin Collages, 2020

If you're already familiar with my work you may also be familiar with my background as a Scenic Artist: I am often hired to design and/or paint large scale backdrops, scenery, and faux-finishing for television, theatre, museum, schools, etc. As a Scenic I would often collect and save leftover scrap material to reuse or repurpose in my Fine Art/Studio practice.

My series of Paint Skin Collages is one such example. For many years I would peel and save the dried paint from the inside of my five-gallon mixing buckets. These "paint skins" as I think of them are truly beautiful as objects in and of themselves. In 2020 I turned my collection of Pain Skins into a series of over 350 small, square collages (measuring about 8x8" unframed).

Below are a few samples: so far I have only photographed about 50 pieces in this series (eventually I'll get to the rest....!). 

Each collage measures 8x8" unframed.
