Mixed media collage as a meditation on feminism and freedom. Collage images sourced from vintage book papers, a 1978 edition of "How to Fill Mental Cavities" by Bill Maltz, as well a 1959 Norman Rockwell cover for the Saturday Evening Post.
These paper and string collages began as an attempt to connect disparate visual narratives in my mind - and to also add to the typical collage tools of paper, craft knife, and glue. I needed something to communicate a connection or energy that was present, that told the story - be it one with ironic, humorous, or melancholy meaning. Such is this string series.
