Animate Creation 1

Animate Creation 1

Collage / 2006

20 x 20 x 1"

This series of ten abstract collages was created in response to five elements: earth, water, sky, light, and animate creation. The collages are not literal depictions of these concepts, but explorations of aspects of these themes. I did two collages to represent each theme.

Many thoughts on these five subjects were incorporated into my process as I worked some are readily visible and some are undercurrents that guided the selection and form of the imagery, but may be less readily apparent.

The collages with the theme of animate creation reference both animal and human forms in terms of the creative spark, the dynamic force that gives life, and the energetic cycles of further growth and creativity.
