Recently, I've been playing some with photographing collages and other older work with my iPad and reworking them using various apps. This collage, made in 2012, was going to be part of a larger series of faces covered by amorphous shapes cut from wallpaper. While I liked the results, I really didn't know why I was making these back then (and still don't), so I made two of them and moved on to other things. I like the reworked version quite a bit, although I still don't have any thoughts about content. Not all art has to mean something, does it?
I made this one a couple of years ago at a time when I was making a lot of digital collage work. I kind of drifted away from digital collage, and from hand made collage as well, but lately have been making both again. The background image is a photo I shot in Richmond, British Colombia a few years ago, manipulated using scanography.
