This is a new series

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have just started to work on.  You may recognize a collage I posted a few weeks ago. I've reworked it with the pallette I've chosen to work with for these.  The project is a concept introduced by Abby, a member of The Recollection Parlor and is based on creating an event in our respective imaginary countries. My country is The Isles of Morpharchengigel, initially developed in a Nick Bantock workshop several years ago.

 It will include a poster, a postcard and an invitation to attend this event.  My event will focus on the idea of 'creation' although I've yet to pin down many of the elements, it will highlight flight, growth and renewal in a  surrealist setting.

The images are a mixture of purchased elements from Paper Whimsy and Holliewood Studios,  public domain images from Wikepedia and NASA, my own photographs and magazine clippings from National Geographic.  I have uploaded them as low resolution and small images, although they are all large, high resolution digital collages that are available for purchase, if they tickle your fancy!


Here they are as a 'group' - I'm liking the bits of red within the blue and aqua.

Hi Trudi-

Your art is gorgeous- I am loving your blog eye candy!

Also, somehow I accidentally deleted your post on my blog and now can't get it back. ARGH! Anyway, I can email you an answer to your question- just email me at discodog01@hotmail.com for details!

Thanks!

Ohhhh, Trudi! LOTS of eye candy and "food for the imagination" here! Your series is magnificent. That tiny "pop" of bright red makes these pieces sing. Love that you've used some NASA pics for backgrounds. They've got some stunning star shots. Fabulous!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo
