“This is the modern attitude—reactions are based on intellect and preconceived ideas instead of a response to natural, immediate experience. Art is the last refuge. It need not
be rationalized.”
—Harlan Hubbard

There is often a direct relationship between a collage and Nature, especially when ingredient elements are drawn from the organic or botanical wonders that surround us. Certainly, there is no way to classify all the indirect relationships, whether they involve images of the natural world or structures that reflect the cosmic order. Frequently, the quality of found material itself conveys the very essence of natural impermanence and the cycles of creation and decomposition. In the final analysis, can there be anything more natural than a spontaneity of eye, hand, and the intuitive psyche?
