Why I’ve been scarce around here

I’ve been making collage books that I hope will be in a show later this year. Four books, one page in each book a night. So far so good. The page sizes are two books of 8.5×5.5″ and two books 4.5×4″ and they all have far too many pages. I’m not even half way finished, but I thought I’d post a few pages just to prove I’m still collaging and not taking over the world or something. Enjoy!



(In my defense, January 18 was a very very bad bad day.)

The Haunted Mini-Mall, No. 1


One day it just closed, quietly. The last lock on the last door of the last surviving store clicked home, quietly, so as not to disturb the silence inside and outside, and in the parking lot, too. Does sunshine make noise? Does the moon whine as it wanes? Not in these ruins.

The Haunted Mini-Mall, No. 2


The optometrist shop still insists “We’re Open!” to no one. Lens-less frames have grown dusty staring straight ahead at nothing, perched on shelves, abandoned in displays. Eyeglasses exiled from any grateful eyes they might have once graced, and now, never. A lack of vision, uncorrected by lenses, an unfocused view.

The Haunted Mini-Mall, No. 3


Bags of chips in the convenience store lay helpless beneath the last flickering fluorescent. One by one, the glowing ceiling tubes flashed out their unintelligible semaphore until the last one stuttered an incomprehensible SOS witnessed only by processed foods in various states of their own decay. A grim landscape of garish packaging bathed in fluorescent lightning.

The Haunted Mini-Mall, No. 4


Photos of cozy homes in the murky windows of the realty office. Desirable residences still beckon, their equity siren song now silent behind smeared sepia. They look ancient, cast away in suburban wastelands. Once designed for gracious living, dreamhomes entombed, haunted by proxy.

The Haunted Mini-Mall, No. 5


Not even the parking lot escaped. Brown leaves blew around in it until they turned to dust and attained the minimal freedom to blow onto empty windows and cling there forever. The outlines of parking spaces have grown faint and cracked. Mute markers for cars that will never park in them. Their fading geometry, their orderly decay. The curbs collapsed inward, sucked into the frozen asphalt maelstrom, uncrossed, unparked-in, uninhabitable, silent, at-rest parking lot. Rain slides off slick stains, all that’s left of cars long gone, dead cars towed away.

The Haunted Mini-Mall, No. 6


The shops closed and stayed closed, exuding silence. Dark display windows are an indifferent audience for the leaves disintegrating in the parking lot. Over time, their glass has become so grimy, it no longer reflects sunlight, moonlight, or the rare headlights of fewer and fewer cars scurrying past the commercial crypt. One day it just closed, dust conquered the locks, and silence claimed the ruins.
