Cut And Paste

MAKING a collage is a Zen thing to do. First you chose a background. In my case it’s wooden waste I find in the street.  After that it’s time to decide what to make. I prefer skylines and work my way around them. Then comes the most important step, with what kind of material you gonna make the collage? I use old LIFE magazines from the sixties I once bought on a flea market. The next stage is sitting at your desk flipping mags, cutting images and get sticky with the glue. Before you know the sun is set and you realize that you forgot to have dinner.  I made the collages on this page over a period of ten years. Most of them I gave away to friends/family.
