Method Behind the Madness

when KFW awarded me this grant, they pointed out i did not explain how i made the art i submitted, or the date my pieces were made.

i think anyone whos had some instruction would know this is an important aspect! now i know. anyway, i wanted to show how i make my collages. last night i came across an image online which inspired me–

marble head from figure of a woman

using just this photograph, i went on the computer program Paint, and used my mouse to cut and paste in order to make this collage.

there are goddesses associated with the bull, like Pasiphae and Selene. perhaps this was in my subconscious. i am not sure why the bull came to mind when i saw the beautiful stone sculpture. i make what i make without forethought, by sitting down with a blank mind.
