Mystery Head


A collage from last year. As soon as I saw the theme and what everyone is doing I was inspired to post this piece.

Spectacular Barbara! I love the graphic quality. So much to interpret in this one. The knife in her hand, the man swinging flowers and the typewriter stand. Can't wait to see what our pal Stanton has to say on this one!

THANKS so much for all your encouragement and praise- this is the first year I have taken anything out of the drawer, gone online with my collage work, etc. and I am wowed by the spirit and talent of this group (this week's round of collages has blown me away!)FYI: Max Ernst is my hero and d'chef, I used to collect old wind-up toys so go figure!

You know, Barbara: I have a Max Ernst, s litography from the series of Ubu Roi (one of my few treasures). And also some old vintage japanese robots from the 50,s...

I bet alot of us in this group have a fondness for vintage toys -- I saw on Angelica's latest post on her blog photos of old toys on her shelves and Max Ernst....how lucky you are to be able to live with one of his pieces. I think your website is great and I like your work alot.

Barbara -I'm late arriving this week to everyone's collages. Yours is excellent! I wish I had a longer-winded, analytical comment, as usual, but all I have to offer is that this is an elegantly surreal collage in the clasic mode of--yes--Ernst, but others too of that great 20's and 30's period. I think SURREALITY, and not Pop for instance, is your strength.
