Collaging the Figure

Here are a few images of the exhibit I installed the other day (there's a bit of a glare from the lighting):

All of the work, with the exception of one of the smaller pieces, are collages that were completed either several years ago or a couple of years ago. I wanted to showcase the work that's led up to the direction I'm moving in now, where I'm exploring different ways of depicting the figure. I'm not just doing portrait pieces where the sitter sits prominently in the center of the composition, but collages from all angles.

Looking back at the work I've created over the past couple of years makes me want to start experimenting more with trying to find different ways to develop my style. I think spending a few minutes every day brainstorming could be pretty helpful.

the exhibit looks a great and gives a real sense of the scale of your pieces - large. i'm sure people will be fascinated by your work.

They look amazing hanging together! The framing is beautiful and I didn't realize they were so big. Just stunning.
