For the past week, we've been exploring collage in my Emily Carr University studio course. It is the first time I've had the opportunity to be guided through the history of collage and various artists surrounding this art form. This collage started out as just an exercise in considering negative and positive space as well as diagonal lines, color and textures. But as is usually the case, , something always emerges that has personal significance to me. My daughters have been on my mind more often than normal lately and I see those thoughts being reflected representationally.
