Experiment 2: Landscape

Landscape by collage artist Megan Coyle

"Experiment 2: Landscape"
Collage on paper
7"x5"

Every now and then I'll do some planning for my workshop in Jasper, Indiana. I like taking my time when it comes to planning for exhibitions and lectures, so that way I can ensure everything is taken care of and that I'm well prepared. So bit by bit I've been working on examples that I'll share with the class.

Above is another experimental piece. Again it looks much different than any of my other work. This is more like playing with the materials and seeing what results I can get. It also helps me think about what projects I can have for the class. This piece is an abstract landscape made entirely from tearing magazine strips. You can see that some of the pieces have more obvious tears while others are pretty subtle.

Neato! It's a cool way to add a little texture. And I'm loving the jagged shapes, too. I agree with Tracey -- this is a success!
