Someone Else’s Pattern

Working on the gulf coast in poor weather makes the Big Studio (the outdoors) unavailable, so this small rented space defines the work. At the moment, tiny space + clean + wanting to explore = collage.

As usual, I brought an unreasonable amount of reading to catch up on. What if I cut it up and used it, instead?

What if I made no marks or brush strokes? Nothing familiar.

No Mark

What if I inserted image, oh hahaha using the Edward Gorey sticker book?

Edward Gorey Elephant

What if I just took in pattern and light?

What if I came down here to work, and was completely unsuccessful?

I’m lost. Maybe I should linger here. I don’t seem to have any choice.
