8" x 6" original mixed media collage with colored pencil on Somerset paper
This is one of a series of small collages experimenting with shapes and layering. The circles are reminiscent of moons and provide the base of the composition with woven collages layered on top. I started this series in 2015 with several pieces of colored paper torn down to a smaller size. Each piece in the series adheres to the following rules: 1) there must be 3 circles, 2) each circle must be a different size, 3) at least 2 circles must overlap, and 4) one circle in each new piece must use a color from the previous piece. Each collage is cut and assembled by hand.
