Haus of Cards

“There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.”
—Francis Bacon

Many of the collage artworks that I have found to be the most fun in creation began as salutes to a friend or member of my family. Quite a few took the form of cover images for greeting cards. What might originate as a meditation on personal traits or favored aspects of life would at times veer unexpectedly into wild territory. For every image imbued with sweetness and flowers, there has been another that threatens to topple the credibility of the entire enterprise — thus, the activity has long been known as my Haus of Cards.
