Collage: Paper on Paper.

I always await this special time
when the earth and the moon and the sun align,
and the sky is aglow with electric light
and the whizz and the snap of ozone ignite.
With all those ions floating around
it's hard to keep my feet on the ground.

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. This is an original one-of-a-kind analog (hand cut and pasted) collage / montage made from paper ephemera (16+ pieces) and Golden Gel Medium. About 7-3/4 x 8-1/4" unframed. Ready to mat and frame to your liking. Fun, surreal art to wrap your brain around, by artist Shawn Marie Hardy
