This piece explores abstraction through firstly selecting some of my original photos. I don't set out with a plan of the how the work will look, it's more of an intuitive process of selecting images that speak to me at the time. I then proceed to add and subtract elements of the images by tearing of cutting as needed. In this piece I wanted to introduce some interesting layering by including transparency. Once the composition is complete, I glue it to the substrate and scan to enhance digitally. Some addition textures and minor colour adjustments were made, as seen in the final piece below.
Here's new a collage I've just completed. I enjoyed being playful with this one and allowed it to form it's own composition. Like most pieces, I choose one hero image and work from there. I approached this one a little differently in that I used more images and introduced some typography with a simpler background. I hope you enjoy!
