Looking at a collage can spark creativity

It says so right here:

“I love visual art, so this week I’m looking at collages, which rely on the juxtaposition of images in a surprising way to generate new meaning. They’re designed to provoke a sense of unconventionality and unconsciously inspire the viewer to become more creative. Here’s an image from one of my favorite collage artists, Ginger Mayerson:”
The Challenge of Creativity: 5 Tips in 5 Minutes, by Laurel Sutton, The Content Bureau, March 22nd, 2016

This made my year! Thank you so much, Laurel. You’re the greatest!

This is a great article, I mean beyond the graph about moi, there’s also this:

“Genuine creativity can come from spending just a few moments occupying your conscious mind, thus preventing it from interfering with the important and innovative activity in your unconscious. Everyone can be more creative—it is just a matter of keeping the loud guy [the conscious mind] in your head busy and giving the quiet guy [your unconscious] a chance to speak up.”

And how y’do it. Collage artists take note: sometimes even we need to look away to look anew.

Happy new year everyone!

Postcard for the show that never happened

This is the postcard I made for the Brewery Artwalk April 17 and 18, but the Brewery management decided to charge an extra $150 for each artists showing in a resident artist studio. Boo. Hiss. So I have a hundred postcards for a show that didn’t happen. Let me know if you want a postcard. I’ll be happy to send it. Sigh.

These collage boxes were really hard to photograph, alas. They’re much cooler in person and the cube ones make noise when you shake them. This makes me laugh. I’ll post a few barely decent images I could get out of the dozens I took.
