What might grow there

June 15, 2016

One of the most interesting things about collage is that it enters you into an active collaboration with something that is neither animate nor sentient. When I start a piece I can always see exactly what I want in my mind. And I get that about 30% of the time. I push the material in one direction, but it pushes back. Sometimes it's like a friend, making constructive suggestions or bending me to nuance things I've overstated (my overstated whimsy is a small environmental disaster). Sometimes it's just a force, inserting themes or ideas that change the landscape of a story, and I, at least, have to re-navigate it.
