I made some super simple magazine collages with very few actual components, and I guess it goes to show that you can make art with very little, and I like that. I like to think that even armed with just a twig and a regret, I could make some kind of an art.
So really I just have a little bit of text and a chopped up smile (and the single piece of colour is from a blobby painting I made). I love cutting up part of my collage materials as I scan. There's something very satisfying about seeing my collages disintegrate as I progress. It's like a cleansing.
I think part of this is that it creates texture and space, and it allows me to rearrange stuff and make it all weird and choppy and interesting, but also I just like to destroy glossy editorial/marketing images and repurpose them into something organic and roughened.
