Very nice organization here. Seriously looks like all these pieces belonged together for a long time. They just didn't knew :lol:

You challenge yourself for sure, to rebuild meaning when it has been torn apart, but you succeed all the time.

I can't decide if the guy is sad and slumpy or reading. I will probably go with reading, although there is some evidence that all is not well in this guy's world.

Good comment, thanks. The guy is in some kind of in-between state at best, I would say.

:aww: thank you very much, dear!

i had parts of it in mind when i began, but was not satisfied when the pieces were glued down, so i kept going until it seemed right.

a companion piece became cluttered and failed - but working spontaneously felt good in both cases. of course, how it feels to make a piece, and its quality in the end, are two separate matters!

not sure I understand the left side, but the centre and right are great.

thanks, and understanding is not required. seriously. most of the sense I find in my work is stuff I read out of it after it's done rather than stuff I put in as I make it. fwiw, I see voids and openings and connections on the left, and it's signifying on the right to some degree - the green at the top is rotated and also brought down to create a diagonal composition of the whole - and the word "brown" is on the left though the only brownness is on the right, again tying the two sides together - but that's just how I see it, I could be mistaken :)

hmm, I'm afraid i'll never think of it like that.
is that how you always look at a collage/image?

always looking at them in terms of formal issues, yeah. of course other things arise, little stories and things that come from the texts.

but making them is intuitive, there's a certain "look" i go after, i can't quite say what it it but i usually know when i've reached it.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a complete guide to a person's contents.

I'm not sure I want a complete guide even to my own contents... Though I suppose a guide would be okay, I wouldn't have to read every chapter.
