My college painting instructor urged us students to make preliminary collages before we started painting. Sometimes the results are so nice that the little collages can stand alone as artwork in their own right. Here are two collages I made in 2002. Above is the lighthearted "Inside-Outside," and below is more serious "Kronos after Goya." The tiny print at the bottom is from an art history text book: Cannibalism stories have ancient roots; here, Goya depicts Greek myth of the god Kronos eating his child. Except my image is a modern girl devouring the feminists of yesteryear--child eating parent.
