I’ve been wanting to do an all black and white collage for a while. I didn’t have any preconceived ideas, just black and white. As I started flipping through magazines and digging through my collection of collage clippings, it all came together.
Snippets of graffiti found in New York City, butterflies, angels, pinup girls, and, of course, imagination. Not just any black and white image made “The Cut”. Each image was thoughtfully selected, and composed to express what I was feeling at the moment.
Sick of confinement. Wanting to escape. Frustration. Angst. These are not unusual feelings for anyone these days.
The bottom line is we have to LIVE. We have to keep going, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I use visual art as an outlet to express my feelings, but for you, it might be writing, or exercise, singing, or dance. Whatever you love doing, don’t stop! Use your creative energy for positive growth, for relaxation, for therapy, just use it!
