Collage: The Poor Man’s Art

Collage is for people like me who can’t draw and don’t have much money. Some construction paper, glue sticks, scissors, and old magazines. Although artists like like Matisse and Ella Richards (internal link) produced fine art with just scissors and paper.

Every few years I get the urge to collage. This is tonight’s creation. The age old question: when to stop? I could fill in every blank space or leave them blank. I may want to fill in everything.

Because I was impatient I didn’t get acid-free paper. This black background paper will eventually fade, becoming a dull gray in between the images. But every graphic needs room to breathe, so perhaps it’s best not to cover much up.

Let me know if you collage and I may be able to post them here.
