dwell Remix  2020 Challenge commentary - Critique:


This magazine's paper worked well for cutting and pasting. The magazine produced 14 collages. I like the overall look of this series. I find the colors vibrant with surreal compositions. Despite the fact that each collage is quite different from each other, the rich vibrant quality of the colors adds a cohesiveness to the series. Diversity in subject matter is not necessarily a bad thing and is often unavoidable. This series covers it all from humor, and symbolism to esoteric sensibilities and futuristic looking abstract environments. Each collage has merit and interest. However, the scantily clad woman on the red horse may come close to being labelled- cheesy. Despite this collage teetering on the edge of the trash bin, there is a sense of grand pompous elegance in slow motion about it. Hermit, the frog, manages to hold his own against a real life deer! The screaming woman could be the backdrop for a psychological slash horror film poster. 

Overall, this series turned out better than I first anticipated.
