Collages

At Cranbrook, I found myself without much money for supplies, so I had to make due with what I found in trash cans and thrift stores. I happened across several beautifully printed custodial supply catalogs from the 50’s and 60’s and decided to make a bunch of collages playing with idiomatic and found phrases.

All in all, these were relatively fun but not entirely successful. I had never made a suite of pieces before, so it made me really look at my motivations over time.
