Collage #10

This largish (48×48″) collage follows the same pattern as #s 5&8—it has a rectangle within the rectangle, a plane within the plane, a picture within the picture. It’s over an old painting in enamel on wood, and I was afraid the glue wouldn’t stick, so I took the paper off and replaced it with either oil or enamel, depending on what was in the studio. It has a dance of straight lines, flat coloured patches, and, in the in-between areas, the kind of scumbling variation of colour and surface you can get with oil paint. Overall inconsistency.
