I also enjoy doing collages ... This one is 12 inches X 12, and is done on a linoleum tile, taped down with clear boxing tape to make it waterproof ...
Both sides of the tile are collaged ... I'll post the other side some other time ...
tell me what you think ...

Just because no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist.

Hi Jeanette,
I like it though perhaps all of its meaning may be lost on some-one like me. I hope Im right in seeing the children and the animals together in can animals think. I see difference in power but wonder if you are in the bottom left corner.?. Aprehensive maybe?.

very cool! interesting and has great emotional impact also. I think it's important to create an emotional impact when you have a message to transmit where you are asking someone to think. People make decisions by their emotions more often han heir minds! I think you have succeede well in this piee in combining mind and emotion and message.

it's only fair to show the other side, I decided, if I was going to have anyone understand it at all ...
my intent was to reveal the joy and the terror that people create ...I also wanted there to be a humor to the pair, hence the stars, the movie stars, and some of the words (can animals think?) ... But there is the serious side represented too, there are pictures of columbine, and the KKK, the gun ...the miss usa symbols, the plastic surgery ad (bottom left corner, not me!)...
I call it Time/Life because all the images were taken from those magazines ...
