Explosions

My latest collage! I got into the practice as a teenager — after gobbling up issue after issue of any magazine I could get my hands on, I inadvertently ended up with a giant stack of them teetering on a chair in my bedroom. In our throwaway culture, collaging still seems to me a great way to repurpose old magazines, letters, newspapers, books, etc. — and it’s therapeutic to boot. It’s also a great way to spend time with friends — I love seeing what they come up with! One day I’d love to create some sort of community event in which people bring tons of old print materials and come together to collage and create new art. I think that’d be pretty rad.
