Theme and Variation in Collage, part 3

“To me I think artists in general make a statement — and for the rest of their lives — every album, every book — are variations on a theme.”
— Mark Mothersbaugh

Here are two examples of my ongoing participation in groups that collaborate through thematic emphasis. Gentle Zephyr is a response to the theme of “music” at the Collage facebook page, but I also made obvious reference to the previous album, “atomic bombs.” Tir de Duc is my second submission to the Target Practice project initiated by L T Holmes. The exciting collaboration that makes use of vintage paper targets has taken on a new significance in recent weeks. Collage artists could spend all their available time interacting with each other through the many active collaborative formats. It is important to find the proper balance between solitary investigation and the dynamic cross-fertilization taking place within contemporary collage.
