Abstract Collage!

Mekina - tempera
Corban - tempera

This week we created painted abstract collages as part of our Abstract Action! theme. These were created by cutting painted paper into pieces then arranging and gluing them to a poster board.

The artists found that after the randomly painted paper is cut into squares or triangles, each piece becomes a tiny little painting by itself. Different artists could "see" different things in each piece such as tiny landscapes, giant fingerprints, ocean waves, the surface of the sun, and bubbles.

What do you see?

 Also, a few of the squares above were traded among the artists before gluing them into place, so that each piece became a collaborative work of art.
