Friday Faves: Canvas, Paper, Scissors

8 Jun

I distinctly remember our section on collage in my Drawing 101 class.  It was kind of painful for me.  I wanted to create interesting beautiful work, but had a hard time getting past memories of third grade art class and Elmer’s glue.  So it isn’t any wonder that some of my favorite work is of the cut and paste variety.. These artists have found the secret to what I was longing to do!

    Very cool. You remind me of my 3rd grade experience, which actually inspired me to become an artist. Thanks for sharing these awesome pieces.
