Madonna & Child OR Re-Parenting My Inner Child 3.5

Series 3, total of 13. Mixed media and giclée printed on archival paper, 8.25” x 10”, 2007


I was getting ready for The 9th International Collage Exhibition and Exchange, New Zealand, April 2007. BUT, something crazy happened along the way. I reread the rules, and realized I couldn't/shouldn't send any PLANT MATERIAL in/on the collages to New Zealand from Canada...


I'm OUT, I thought. I have several collages with dried leaves, parsley leaves, a hibiscus bloom, twigs, moss, dog hairs, my hairs, pubic hairs... So, I decided I couldn't break up the set of 13 as they were and so decided to just keep them... and hope for the best... that they'll be shown eventually together, somewhere. So, here they are, all 13, together.


This has been my process. I was working on these 13 in the last couple of weeks and am now posting the transitions, or should I say transformations, or should I say transmutations, or, dare I say... transcendence.
