Collage was one of my first art loves. Much of what I learned from making collages informs my mosaics, the way pieces combine to create a new whole. Also, being covered in glue is a common thread! Stratoz has been musing on what kind of client he would be, inspired by listening to Coltrane playing My Favorite Things, and a collaboration he was envisioning with collage artist Abby Sernoff of 111 Collage Design. He asks:
And I wonder how I would act as a client??? Would I be willing to commission a piece and say, “Make it new. Let the creativity flow?” I am thinking of doing that with a collage artist. I desire one of Abby Sernoff’s pieces, but how to make that commission still floats in my mind.
Stratoz made some colored pencil drawings to send to Abby and she is going to incorporate them, in whatever way she is inspired, into a collage for him. The collage below is one that both Stratoz and I admire, with the vibrant color. I look forward to seeing what Abby creates for her new client.
