Frogs, bears and horses

A disparate crew, to be sure, but that’s the beauty of collage. I love how seemingly unrelated things can start ‘talking’ to each other when you put them side by side.

In this case, the frogs, bears and horses are the themes for three separate pieces, but when I see them lined up together I really am struck by how they work together.

'Raise Giant Frogs' (mixed media collage, 9 in x 6 in)

Roar! (mixed media collage, 9 in x 12 in)

'Courage, Speed, Power' (mixed media collage, 9 in x 12 in)

 

The collages will all be part of my exhibition ‘Us and Them’ at the Britannia Art Gallery here in Vancouver, which officially opens on September 15. I say officially because the show will be up as of September 8, but I’m going to be away in Victoria for ‘Birds at Sea’ so the opening has been shifted until the 15th.
