This is my Holy Grail.
Collage has been my Love and quest from the beginning.
Scissors cut paper.
Elegant, simple, unlimited.
The work of Joseph Cornell has taught me the power of 3 dimensions' simplicity and elegance. The massive collage paintings of James Rosenquist are my Everest. (It is my goal to one day create a hand-cut collage, as large as or larger than, Rosenquist's F-111, 10 feet x 86 feet). Richard Hamilton taught me humour and irony, Kurt Schwitters and Raul Hausmann gave me freedom to express my inner motives, Jean Arp, grace, Romare Bearden, faith, and the unrelenting technical prowness of Robert Raushenberg, technique.
I love collage-painting. It's the longing for that magic, that sunset, that kiss, that hope - the mystery.
