'The development of a tree depends on where it is planted.' Edward Joyner
This is the first of the thirteen collages I am making for the next International Collage Exchange (ICE) and the 4th time I will be part of this wonderful exchange. If your interested in being part of the exchange there's still time as they're not due until (around) March next year. For details on how to swap visit the virtual tart website and if your interested in participating in the 'Portrait of the Artist' exhibition you can find the information for it on the same page.
Those of you who've visited my site before will know that I am 'just a little' nest crazy, I am facinated by their form, texture, beauty and the total brilliance of the birds that create them. You will also be likely to know I have a theory that Society is a Nest...and it will be no surprise to read that this theory is providing the inspiration and motivation for another collage series! (If your wondering what I am talking about please click on the links below.)
Fragile. Society is a Nest II.
The journey has begun.
I found it interesting to compare this first collage with the 'firsts' I've done for the other exchanges. If your also interested in seeing the changes and growth in my collage style over the last few exchanges you can see the first collage I created for the 2008 exchange here the 2009 exchange here and the 2010 exchange here.
