Time off

A little time off from work has allowed me to get back to collage for a few days! I'm working on a piece for some friends of mine, K. and J., but there's still more to go (the above photo shows the piece in progress) -- trying to emulate Klimt with paper and not with paint takes serious time! But I'm very pleased to get the opportunity to use my new scissors from Germany that are specially made for scherenschnitte and silhouettes. I'm glad to have the chance to mix collage with scherenschnitte for this project... will definitely do more of this in the future.

Here's the final result!

Que nos cubram de ameaças e de espanto
Que nos cortem as asas mas o canto
Voa mais alto do que as penas

ends of the earth

another collage in the series on consumption. this one looks at how our desire to consume new, unique and exotic products drives us perhaps a bit too far.

built nature

Another collage in the series on consumption. This one takes a look at the relationship between the built and natural environment -- the consumption and practices of space.

changing faces

this is part of a series i'm working on that has to do with consumption. here the idea is to explore the intimate relationship between consumption and identity -- how what we consume contributes to shaping our identities and the images we wish to relate to others.

the fan and the flower

I did this collage just a few days before seeing Bill Plympton's "The fan and the flower" (short film) at IndieLisboa. How surprising it was odd to see in retrospect that the collage was telling the same story as the film though I was certainly unaware of it at the time.
