Since I have a lot of collages to show, I've split them up into groups of various types and levels of abstraction; some more objective than others. Click the buttons below to view.

I like to piece together objects, colors, and forms from magazines, (a whole world of images those mags,) and glue them onto quarter inch hard board. I use acrylic gloss medium as the adhesive. Plastic. As I press the paper into the plastic it permeates the paper fibers and then I layer coats of the same medium over the surface so not only do I embed the paper in very durable plastic but I cover the whole thing in plastic, making it well preserved paper. The unknown is how the various qualities of papers and inks in different magazines will wear by reaction to light and by internal chemical reactions, which may break down the original color.
