Filtering my former work

I'm experimenting with taking photos of collages I did years ago, running filters on them, printing those out and cutting into strips to make new and different art! I'll show the original art and the new version pieced together in strips.



Revisiting an image

I cropped an image of a flower garden tighter than a previous use of the image. Then I ran 4 filters in Prisma and cut the prints into irregular shapes. A few pieces of handmade papers found their way into this 12"x12" collage, too.

Blog cross-pollinating

A woman from Scotland asked me this week if she could feature my art on her blog about art and life. I like the article she wrote:

Conjuring up summer!

This 12" x 12" piece features a happy bee sipping his supper. I made one filtered version of the photo in Photoshop and 3 in Prisma. I cut them into irregular shapes and combined to reform the image, and added in some handmade papers, too.

Taking the Long View

I took the original photo for this artwork five years ago in Knox County, Illinois not far from a relative's home. I ran four filters on the photo - two in Photoshop and two in Prisma - and cut them into irregular shapes to build the scene. I added some handmade papers in the grassy area to further break up the imagery. It is 16"H x 20"W.

Experimentation

I've been experimenting with cutting my altered prints into irregular shapes instead of quarter-inch strips. Feedback from my Facebook posts suggests the one with the red barn was quite popular and that I should continue with both methods. These are 12"x12" and 9"x12". I just started a 16" x 20" so come back and see how it turns out!
