The Second Magpie

If Dreams Were Flamingos

In Uncategorized on September 8, 2011 at 03:01

For the first 7 months or so of this year I surrounded myself with newspapers, magazines and scrap paper and created collages. I was travelling up and down the country a lot at the time and it was easier to transport a bag of paper than a bag of paint/brushes/canvas etc. During that time I felt if I concentrated hard enough on using scraps to create a new world, the one I was in might disappear just long enough to create some fairytale mirage. They weren’t an easy 7 months, 2011 seems intent on testing me in every way. An ‘outsider’ may perhaps be able to see a reflection of that in this work, full of tears and sharp edges.
