Experiment 1: Non-Objective Art

Experiment 1 - Nonobjective Art by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Experiment 1: Non-Objective"
Collage on paper
7"x5"

These past couple of days I've been doing some planning for my workshop in April. Part of my prep work includes coming up with projects that the class will work on and creating my own samples to share with the students. I've decided that one technique I'll share is creating non-objective art with magazine strips. I never create abstract pieces myself, but I decided to give it a go with this small collage.

At the moment, I'm also working on a small portrait piece. I'll share an image of that collage once it's complete.

Hope everyone had a happy January! Can't believe it's already been 2011 for a month!

How different for you! It has great depth. Is it hard doing something so different from what you usually do? I like it.
