Private View

One from the archives featuring the king of repetition Andy Warhol.

Conga Line

From the archives...

About Becoming and Passing Away

These heads lay on my table for a while (and I still have plenty of them) -
 I used them already for a collaboration I made with Lynn - 
so in this sense it is a repetition of a repetition.

Theme of the week: Repetition

Use the same mage minimum twice or three times or more often - maybe you use copies or you have an original image many times or you use very similar ones.
Have fun - and a wonderful week!

Worlds Of Mummy Cloth

One of several scenic postcards from my old mail art chum PLG in Germany which I have been recycling this week.

Going Insane!

Being halfway cutting, gluing and building this ingenious, technical, futuristic 'what-u-see=what-u-get' time-machine, the inventor and collagist completely lost his head .....
Luckely there's a nurse looking after him.

Robot Party

Happy Easter! One from the archives to start as I expect we'll be quite busy looking for eggs and hot cross buns this weekend!

This week´s theme: Technic

Technic in the sense of engineering or technology or in the sense of technique (for example in art) or what ever comes in your mind - maybe the technique of the Easter Bunny to hide Easter eggs ?

And - certainly - Happy Easter to all!

Theme of the week: Anatomy

Good morning friends - in April I´m going to pick the themes for us - and many thanks again to Ron for the fantastic themes during the last two months!
Here we go:
"Anatomy is the branch of biology concerned with the study of the structure of organisms and their parts" (Wikipedia says). Humans, animals, plants or what ever comes in your mind - maybe structure of robots, machines .....

A Brief History of Time

I've been playing with some little (5"x5") zine-style books, using old collages as illustrations.  I print them on my trusty Epson and then staple together (usually crookedly...).  One is called "A Brief History of Time" and here are a couple pages:

This week's theme: Time

Time marches on, and my temporary tenure as Kollage Kit thematic chooser is at a close.
Tempus fugit, therefore this week we focus on the concept of "Time" - Past, Present or Future…anything goes.
Thanks for all the great artworks my fellow collagians these past two months.

adventures in pet walking

For this one, I had to cope with my incompetence as a collage artist: it didn't turn out the way I imagined it in my mind beforehand. I won't tell y'all what went wrong, 'cause that would just be lame. =laugh=

Mao's Puffer Fish

Some more random mail art....

The Coronet

In Dutch 'the coronet' translates as 'de hoofdtooi' and that means something on the head with feathers.

Pamela and Her Primate Pets

One from the archives (yikes! I created this collage five years ago for The Kollage Kit! where does the time go?) I think the theme was LOVE. I reworked the title. Hope to get in the studio later this week to create a new collage for this week's excellent theme!

1950's Model and Her Pet Owl

The Artist's World

We have visitors at the moment so difficult to get into the workroom for any meaningful collage. Here's one from the archive you may not have seen before.

the cobbler's dream

As Edgar A. Poe expressed it:
      Is all that we see or seem
      But a dream within a dream?

A collage of portraits ..

Since this is an 'arts and crafts' theme and I just can't stop painting and drawing the last few weeks, I thought I would include this gallery of portraits I made today ;))
