The Rule of Touch, mixed media collage, 2022
we are destroyed by what is possible the first rule: hands and only hands are an eternal source of lightning they’ll show you themselves the line that traces your chin from one button to another one is naïve one blossoms like a moth torn from a paintbrush the second rule: the feet fall in love first the insect is indefinite the lightbulb is always more fatal than it seems the error: the routine nakedness of a flower pot the psychology of a picture frame, as though it had a right to be moved the wall, as though it had a right to be anywhere
I hope it isn’t too much having two pieces of artwork in this post, but as I made both collages in the same sitting, and I felt it would somehow be wrong to omit the second one, I decided to include both.
Prints are available in my Etsy shop.
Also, I’d like to invite you to view my newly updated Collage gallery if interested. You may have noticed that I’ve recently given The Used Life a bit of an aesthetic makeover, and I changed the artwork on that page to reflect more of what I’m doing presently.
