I am putting these four small postcard-sized collages into the postcard art exhibition troika 8..
and here they are, at just about life size..
each are about 9cm square within the postard format.. the scans came out a little darker than hoped for; there is no black, it’s a mix of prussian blue, burnt umber, and some phthalo blue with ochre, gold and white.
took quite a while over these; they are collaged papers, cut-up into strips, re-collaged, cut-up and recombined again.
they will be a snip at just £11 each at the troika 8 postcard fair, at the dragon hall in norwich, 11-13 december 2009..
i bought a ridiculously large book from a secondhand bookshop, rembrandt’s eyes by simon schama, also a snip at £10.. i’ve read an excerpt, it will probably take me a year to read from cover to cover..
