Art Description

Collage: Paper on Paper.

My work is usually spontaneous, and while my collages may seem simple, I tend to labor over each one for hours. ADD makes it very hard for me to organize, so finding just the right combination of colors and shapes is a challenge. Every piece I assemble is both a labor of love, and an obstacle to cross.

I am a lover of the unknown; of science fiction, and the idea that there might be others out there besides us. I tend to add satire and humor to my work, and I like to place things where they don't belong. I get enough realism in real life so I unwind by creating little escape hatches that are fantastical and dreamlike. I don't usually have a preconceived idea behind these collages; they are like jigsaw puzzles that I create blindly. The story does not unfold until the work is finished and the story is different for everyone.

This is an original one-of-a-kind analog (hand cut and pasted) collage / montage made from paper ephemera (about 51 pieces). 12 x 10-3/4" unframed. Fun, surreal art to wrap your head around, by Shawn Marie Hardy, aka Collage-a-Dada
