Collage, 7-1/2" x 9-1/2"

Collage, 6-1/2" x 9-1/2"


  1. still digging these, like how you've got transparency and projection going on in the same ones. maybe i should reinstate my suggestion about oblique photos.

  2. Yeah. But I still don't know how to think of things as see-able from not only head on. Really, I can't bear sides!

    Even when I'm compelled to make completely free standing objects, I'm unnerved by their three dimensions.

    So, I think of these as flat, is what I'm saying, even though they're not.

    Will that be my downfall?

  3. not at all. you make it sound as if internal contradiction is a bad thing. i wish i could unnerve myself.

  4. So, it's tough being a Zen master, you're saying?

    Internal contradiction, ahhhh.

    I remember the thrill I felt when I first read that Emerson wrote that consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. I though, oh, he's not as dull and pedantic as I thought. But then I realized that the full quote was a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. That kind of took the fun out of it.

    What does consistency, foolish or not, have to do with internal contradiction? I don't know. Just made me think of that quote. Really, though, wouldn't it be great if he'd just said consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds without ruining it with foolish?

  5. But we can draw that line wherever we want.

  6. i dont mean to be, honest!
    but i do like some of those ink paintings they do.

  7. Of course you don't mean to be . . . that wouldn't work.
