Paper collage on cardboard, about 9 x 9 inches. A little wider than my scanner, so the image is not quite square.

:iconsmirkplz: Funny , this reminds me the works of one of my finnish friends - He paints them , but use of color is similar , and use of everyday
items like the chair , and how the human figure is done .

I think there are various aesthetic streams flowing all the time and different artists can step into the same one, in their own ways.

That´s true . In this case it was unexpectable to find the connection between two artists styles anyway .

I love your exploration of form/shape and composition!
Even more when you add figurative and abstract in one piece...it feels "stranging" and makes me wonder about it!
Thank you! ;)

Thanks, ML. I can see that... it isn't my intention, not exactly. I'm dealing with rhythms and forms rather than concepts, and the shape of sadness and happiness can be the same - so the piece is open to be read in the way that each viewer needs/wants/chances to see it. Sadness is a definite possibility. :heart:

Yep. I saw this wafting in all directions but liked the sad part the best. :)

Awwww, shucks! I'm really happy to hear that too - the beginning of this piece came fast, but then I had to coax it along for several days. Delightful to hear that it worked :aww:

I really like the chair. This is one of the first collages of yours that has three-dimensional depth. :flowerpot:

Thanks. That's right, I usually use flat images. But sometime yesterday I thought, "I want a chair." I looked around - there was one lying on the floor.
