includes a black
white works. some of
the art used in these older books is amazing, humorous and detailed. There are only so many uses for black and
white art....and so i have gained quite a collection. i decided to do a book of collage based on all of this black
first few spreads of this book contain
a bit of color, but as i continued, i gradually left all traces of color out and black and white was the rule. here i have displayed the first 20 pages of the book. the rest will follow in future issues of the TRUNK.
â€˘ lemon pines collage, 2002
this collage was inspired by the exquisite marbling techniques of a belgium artist named alain valet. He does original hand marbling with some very intense colors. i love their richness and i immediately have a desire to draw on it. alain Valet also works in pen and ink and does collage. more of his work can be seen on my website at this link: http://www.magikglasses.com/aez/alainswf.html this particular collage piece is almost a self portrait. as i worked on it, i felt more and more like the little girl on the edge of the woods, beckoning you in.
