Magazine Collages: NICE TO MEET YOU
I tore the pieces of these collages instead of cutting them, because sometimes that rough edge creates this odd calm. The softness of the edge is nice. The fuzzy tapering of an image instead of clean lines. It's human. It lends itself nicely to a gentle collage aesthetic. And it just feels right to rip things apart with your hands sometimes.
Themes here are florals, meadows, shadows, and curls of hair. Lots of things I come back to a lot. Lots of things that bring a certain kind of peace to me.
Little torn up things are so representative of life, I think. We're all little torn up things. Rough-edged little multitudes.
