A new idea and/or collaboration(if interested)

i keep having the idea of a collaboration where one artist sends another artist scraps, images, pages, objects, or magazines and the receiving artist creates a collage using given materials. after reading the topic of scraps and my personal interest in scraps, i would love to do something like this with other artists who are willing to compile an envelope of scraps and send it my way and each of us create a new work using those materials. whether they modify the scraps with tools is up to the artist. i like the idea of no modification. just using the scraps as is.

Who's with me?

feel free to post address or email me address and i shall give you mine.

thanks,

matt taggart

Hey, these look good.

Ken, it is an interesting process. i'm glad to see your works with Adrian's scraps. i'm excited to get his in the mail and work with them. i sent out yours and Adrian's scraps this morning. i have more scraps of your Ken. need to work with the rest. been working with music lately. sadly haven't gotten to collage but i'm feeling the need to play with glue and paper soon.

thanks Diane. please feel free to join the experiment.

This is the second "as is" from Adrian's scraps. 9 x 12 inches.

 

Love it, it turned out great!

Adrian's Scraps -- cut, torn, punched. 5.5 X 10 inches on Canson Art Board.

ken, i really enjoy these pieces using Adrian's scraps. the last one is really nice. my favorite. its getting me excited to get his in the mail and see what i can do with them.

then i was thinking of using some of the scraps Ken sent me and combine them with Adrian's scraps and maybe some of mine. three way scrap battle.

Thanks, Matt.

Three way scrap battle, eh?   . . . let 'er rip!

Hello Gwenn,

so glad to hear you are on board with this. thank you.

so we need to exchange addresses and each of us send each other our scraps and see what we both can make of them. you can also contact Ken and Adrian if you like. more the merrier.

i will send you a friend request and email you my address and if you like send me yours.

thanks again. hope all is well.

Here are some of the scraps from Matt that showed up today.
Now, let's see  .  .  .

Ok, so here's one I did using resources from the three of us. The kid is mine, i used the envelope that Ken sent me scraps in for the background and the red globe is from Matt. I always name my collages, this one is "Memories receptacle".

Here's one using scraps from Matt "as is."   9 x 10 on Canson Art Board.
