While I settle back into my home studio, I've been pretty content working on abstract collage compositions in a large Moleskine journal/sketchbook (8.25 x 11.75"). Despite my rather huge paper collection, I aspire to have a more minimalist lifestyle (eventually!) and working like this feels particularly right for the summer season.These analog collages are made with elements ripped from discarded magazines. They do not include any added drawing or painting, just glue. Some imagery is just destined to be salvaged, connected, and transformed.I've been posting these small collage works on Instagram. To see more, follow me there at janicemcdonaldart. In the meantime, here are snapshots of a few of the collages... including one in progress on a work table at the Art Gym.
