Collage Clean-Up

 

I have my collages scattered in portfolios, notebooks, sketchbooks, boxes, files, etc.  I am completely re-doing my workroom not because I want to, but out of necessity.  I am trying to organize two rooms into one and I have to get rid of lots of things.  That has not been a problem, but it is slow going. In the process, I have realized that as organized as I like to think I am, my collages are a mess.  I have never really organized them, so I thought now was as good a time as any.  I plan to have them sorted by years and in order for this to go smoothly, I thought I would post them online to help me keep track.  The past 10 years, I was good at putting a title and date on the back, but before that, I left them blank except when I used a date stamp.  I will be posting my old work on my Ipernity site since I like the way their albums are set up.  If you want to see the process, you can find the start of them HERE .  I imagine it will take me some time to get them all on since I have hundreds, and hundreds more I traded or gave away/sold.  I have never counted, so it might be interesting to see them all together, at least for me.  I'm not too proud of my early work, but hey, we all have to start somewhere.

Fashion Forward

collage with oil paint, 8x10

One of our neighbors is a dealer of high end vintage posters.  Over the years, we have gone to his garage sales and bought some cool old posters, like of Push Pin or Olivetti ads, for a great price.  This last sale he had a stack of 1930s-50s French posters that had seen better days.  Too worn for resale, but cool enough for collage, so John bought me the pile for next to nothing.  This collage has elements from one of the posters.
