This is a collage that I did this past week. I was going for a colorful, all-over design. The piece is 11x14” (POR) It’s done in acrylics and the collaged elements are mostly joss paper.
Joss paper is traditionally made from coarse bamboo paper, although rice paper is also commonly used. Joss paper burning is usually the last performed act in Chinese deity or ancestor worship ceremonies.
Its been a while since I’ve done much collage work –probably since I started painting every day. I am a Signature Member of the National Collage Society an was a frequest participant in international collage shows.
