Featured Collage: Lobsters in Bloom

This week's featured collage, Lobsters in Bloom, is a layered paper collage I made using hand-stamped and altered paper. It is a whimsical take on lobsters, which are a Maine icon. Lobsters in Bloom was inspired by the fabric lobster ornaments I used to make, as well as images I took from my back yard. The 16" x 20" x .75" original is available here.

 Lobsters in Bloom was featured in the January 2017 issue of Kolaj Magazine (#18)

I was honored to have my collage, Lobsters in Bloom, featured in the January 2017 issue of Kolaj magazine. The article, written by Ric Kasini Kadour, discussed Collage Painting, in which some collage artists (like me), use collage arrange collage fragments "into a compositional whole where the gestalt of the picture is the art".  (p.32) Other artists featured in the article included Carole Bleistein, Colin Talcroft, Benon Lutaaya, and Eva Richardson.
