Shadowplay, the collage

I especially enjoyed the connections of lines and patterns in the development of this collage. "Shadowplay" is another from the color constructs series in the Edge Gallery show, continuing through November 29th. The collage is 20 x 10 x 1", composed of contemporary papers on a wood support. (Click photo for more detail.) My collages grow piece by piece, layer by layer. As the piece develops, I continue to cut, crop, rip, arrange, and layer elements, making decisions about what works and what is needed next to complete the composition.
