Here’s a new collage – I have been making collages since the 70′s when I worked as chief graphic designer at the Walker Art Center. Working as a designer at the Walker I had a few collages on the design department wall going all the time. Collage is such a fast fine art activity, I could ad to each collage with leftover images from my designs work for the museum.
Heres some collages that express my WILDNESS themes:
1. The curvey line in Nature – Snake, lightning, flow of water ( like a river ), the heart beat.
Lightning Strike – Mixed Media Collage – 28″ x 40″ – Jim J01
2. The Circle in Nature – The Water Born Planet, The Mandala
Water Born – Mixed Media Collage – 42″ x 46″ – Jim J01
A Clear Bead at the Center - Mixed Media Collage – 30″ x 30″ – Jim J02
2. The Mandela -
This one was done in the 1970′s before I started dating them and signed them JimJ – inspired by mandalas
The Photo of Hubert Humphrey was an extra print from a Press Photography Exhibit we had at the Walker.
Notice the Statue of Liberty as a tear in his eye.
Thanks Hubert – Mixed Media Collage – 20″ x 20″ – Jim 1970′s
This one was done as a memorial to John Lenon after he was killed in 1981. It has symbolic references to the violence of his death ( The sharks) – The four Beatles – The time of his death, New Years – Beatles music albums.
Thanks John – Mixed Media Collage – 30″ x 40″ – Jim J 1981
