"Reformation"

47.50

I recently looked back at my first collages and after 7 years of creating, it's amazing to see what transformations I went through. In the beginning, I relied heavily on stamps, magazine imagery, stickers, washi tapes & typeset. In the middle part of my journey, my collages were very heavily layered. They were often so messy and chaotic that they lost a focal point. Most of them were cut-up and the tidbits were re-used in other artwork. I also went through a phase of very angular & geometric forms filling my substrate, which helped me gain a better sense of positive-negative space. All of these changes in my process were necessary and taught me so much as I progressed as an artist. And, today I am happy to continue improving and reforming my work.
