During work on a recent composed landscape collage, I documented the progress with my iPhone. The images are now formatted as a video for your viewing pleasure. Next time I’ll use a tripod but truly there was no room to set one up in my studio!
I often had to walk into the next room to get as much distance as I could to evaluate the collage, knowing that it would ultimately be viewed both from long distances and up close. It’s very rare for me to work on a piece from the top down (roughly) but I’m generally not working from a sketch either. In this case, it just seemed to develop that way. The final collage, titled “Colorado,” is 60 x 40″ and is installed in the offices of the Adolph Coors Foundation in Denver, Colorado.
