Torn Paper Painting Collages
I’m sending you my “Goldfish” piece to represent my New Year’s resolution. My resolution this year was to actually promote my art in a serious way. When I saw this challenge, I saw it as taking a step toward that very thing. A chance to swim in the big pond!
My work consists of papers that are handmade, painted, found, etc. and torn and applied in small areas at a time using gel medium to create a single image…or “painting” if you will.
I refer to them as “paintings” more often than collage since most collage is done with cutting out one image or another and adding it to other images. In my process…the “image” is the end result of all the many applied papers.
