two of a kind

Thursday 12 December 2013

two very small abstract collages of a quietly rustic nature, created by means of assembling very small fragments of paper, paint, card, small fragments as previously found or occurring and collected hereabouts, more presently reclaimed, reused and recycled, otherwise known simply as frugal collage.

somewhat styled (unavoidably) in the manner (or manor) of rural ways and other asides, esp. in the character or facades of old sheds and barns or similar as-seen rural structures, firstly of practical usage, not for the sake of pastoral beauty.

or elsewhere inspired, simple shelters from the elements, weather-proof or not, in later wreckage or scattered debris.

may as well (also) recall times of austerity, making do (or making less), and mending, hammering down, fixing up, hoarding, et cetera. and so, only humbly offered, and note very small, these won’t break the bank, two of a kind, if you will:

…. [to be continued]

maybe others won’t see the changes as much, going with the flow, a slow painting in progress, the time-related idea of the painting, a simple flight of fancy, in the passing of time, nature and the seasons, recollections and memories, away from the source, of the nearby river, the lakes, and the trees. i may have turned a pastoral corner, or wandered off the path…
