This page contains two series of collages. In the first series, I collaged images of furniture, clothing, etc. from a 1960 Sears catalogue. In the last century, the Sears catalogue was a critical link to the outside world of commerce for many people, especially those who, like my father, lived on farms. It was the Amazon.com of mid-century America. Likewise, the collages reflect Modernist art movements such as Russian Constructivism, Dada, and Surrealism.
In the second series, I cut rain drawings into small strips of paper and reassemble them in patterns, such as parquet or herringbone, working from dark to light.
