Picking up the Pieces at Cafe Nomad

Almost three years ago I started this series of collages – Picking up the Pieces – when I could no longer find the surface of my drawing table, covered as it was with myriad leftover pieces of prints. I’ve written about this work, and the process here and a little later here. To date, I’ve completed more than 80 of these collages; and I still have drawers filled with additional scrap material. It looks like I will always have plenty of puzzle like pieces to rearrange into some workable configuration – both literally and metaphorically.

Today my friend Diana Arcadipone and I put up about 45 of these collages on the gallery wall at Cafe Nomad. The work will be up for the rest of the month of August. So if you are headed into the Western hills for a hike (or lake swim, or whatever), stop at the Cafe for a great breakfast or lunch, and check out my work on the wall! If you can’t get there, you can see a selection on the collage page of this site.
