Collage: Paper on Paper.

Bob loves to watch as the little people come home from work. He wishes he could be like them.

My work is usually spontaneous, and while my collages may seem simple, I tend to labor over each one for hours. ADD makes it very hard for me to organize, so finding just the right combination of colors and shapes is a challenge. Every piece I assemble is both a labor of love, and an obstacle to cross.

I am a lover of the unknown; of science fiction, and the idea that there might be others out there besides us. I tend to add satire and humor to my work, and I like to place things where they don't belong. I get enough realism in real life so I unwind by creating little escape hatches that are fantastical and dreamlike.

This is an original one-of-a-kind analog (hand cut and pasted) analog collage / montage made from paper ephemera (7 pieces) and Golden Gel Medium. About 5-1/4 x 8-1/2" unframed. Ready to mat and frame to your liking. Fun, surreal art to wrap your head around, by Shawn Marie Hardy
