COLLAGE - Original Mixed Media Description
Title: I'd Do It Again Year: 2013 Artist: Michel Keck Media: paper and paint on canvas board (frame not included) This collage, I'd Do It Again, is from my abstract paper collage series. This series of works has been one of my favorite series to work in. I leave behind my brushes and paints my charcoals and pastels, to create abstracted collage paintings with various found papers and material. Instead of paintbrushes, my scissors and hands both cut and rip these found papers and materials to create line, color and form. I love the layering of all of the papers and materials as the thick dimension of all the layers bring each piece to life. Each torn and cut piece has its own specific place in the artwork. I think the beauty in these works is that they appear to be just thrown together but it is actually quite the opposite. I can fuss for hours sometimes even days to have the shaped or colored piece layed placed in just the perfect position.
