For Every Orlando (no more, no more)

I am not a social animal savvy with media today but I have posted the following here and there:

"I humbly submit the image below "Embraced by Grace (For the Upstairs Lounge)" to send love and healing to the victims and loved ones of the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando Florida. The only legacy I can think of at the moment, against terrorism, is love. If anyone has (or had) LGBT loved ones and would like to share their stories via letters,…

Supporting Janice McDonald's View on Posting Video Content

When I first attempted posting these it was via embedding, and I had no idea how much space these would take up here on this Ning site. I'm still not particularly savvy when it comes to things such as MB vs. KB etc., but given the fact that combined, these collage-films of various montages and mixed media as "stills" numbers close to 500, light dawned on Marblehead again. Thank you Janice for your tip and your patience.

Video content

Hi, all --

More people are documenting their work with video these days but it takes up a lot of space when posted directly to this site. Consider posting your videos to YouTube or Vimeo, then giving us some info and a link instead. 

Thanks,

Janice

53 Weeks Assemblage Project

Over a decade ago I finished a yearlong art project in which I did an assemblage every week for a year. It was a visual diary and each assemblage was created using found objects and ephemera that were saved from the days prior. The project had the lackluster title of 52 Weeks and it's documented on my website here: http://www.anti-product.com/52-weeks.html…

Poetry Art Montage

This is a case of light dawning on Marblehead. I have been fascinated by writing and art a good deal of my life. Around 2000 I began seeking publication combining the two in various formats, including, early on, entering text directly on image. It was this year, while working on a new series of montages, that it occurred to me I might be able to obtain greater clarity by uploading/merging PDF files. Sixteen years later and here is an example of that result.…

Dear Ms. Willis:

I hope you are well and looking forward to the New Year. I am writing because, although your wonderful piece appeared in the Oregonian some time ago, I recently was inspired to create the enclosed image. I was wondering if you know who the original photographers might be so I could give them credit/share image. I…

The Mechanics of Art Assemblage

This is a voyage into the world of Assemblage Art that you may find useful in the sorting through materials that may be used in three dimensional ‘Junk or Found Art’.  In the world  of ‘Common Objects’ and elements, we find that they can be transformed into a representational art form.  There are certain modes of construction and cohesion in the relational paths that bring you to a finished piece of work. 

What may look like a series of broken pieces in front of you will ultimately…

Looking for representation and/or a venue to show

After 30 years in academia teaching architecture and making collage as a parallel but more or less private enterprise, I feel it's time to offer this side of my creative identity to an audience. I am looking for advice on how best to approach galleries, which ones have a penchant for collage across the globe, what invitational group shows there may be currently with open calls, and so on. I appreciate the possibility of learning from the collective wisdom of the members of the ISACA. Yours,…

Two Latest Projects of different stripes (Sound vs. Mixed Media)

Sometimes I really stop and scratch my head over what I do with my time.

Definitive and iconic is Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit" and its words first published as a poem by teacher Abel Meeropol. When attempting to interpret all another poet/singer can hope to do is pay respect to the originators while also hoping to bring the same emotional integrity. It is August 2015 as I write this. It was 1937 when the poem was first published. Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where…

Montage Guilt

In many ways I feel strange/inadequate, like an imposter, for continuing to participate on this site when much of my work in the past couple of years has become more about montage than collage. At the start of the year, having become obsessed with doing a piece on Alan Turing (which turned into roughly 300 images), I wrote this: "...as I continue to get older and work a day job, montages have become a way of compacting creative energy while my time on earth remains a mystery. I like the idea…

Self-Curate Your Collage Images

Some of you are probably wondering why not all of the images you've uploaded have been posted.We've recently had a tremendous number of new images uploaded so please review the guidelines below, necessary because this is a group site for the global collage community with fairly limited resources...

Please put a representative group of your works on the site and then, for vast numbers of images, put them on flickr, your website, or another image archive. You can then link to the more…

Fund raising campaign

I'm producing work for my first solo show in San Francisco this coming July (for three months). I'm very excited to do this, however, moving work there from Portland and back, plus production is costly. So I've started a funding campaign at www.hatchfund.org/project/in_and_out

If you get a moment, take a look at the video a friend of mine in San Francisco put together for me. If anyone here can pass this along to fellow artists…
