8" x 6" original mixed media collage mounted on textured white Somerset paper with cut edges.
This series is a continuation of my exploration with colored pencil as a backdrop for collage, but this time with circles in smaller format pieces. I followed a rule where each piece needed to have three circles, each with a different diameter. I also usually carried one circle color over to the next piece. I find the layering of the woven collage on top of the colored pencil to be a fun effect. In some pieces, the collage mostly obscures one or more of the circles, as if they are hiding, while in others, some circles remain completely visible to the viewer. The circles and their various juxtapositions remind me of moons and the collages give an impression of satellites in space. I created the collages by cutting up some of my own former prints and found wallpaper samples. Each collage is one of a kind and cut and assembled by hand.
