As usual, these 3-scrap collages were made by blindly taking three torn papers from studio scrap containers and challenging myself to do with them whatever interested me most.  To some I added a bit of ink lining.

Selected pages from my art book for The Sketchbook Project, permanent collection of the Brooklyn Art Library in New York and on tour beginning April 2012:

3-scrap collage

Posted: August 24, 2011 in 3-scrap collages, collage 2011

These four are from a current private art notebook that is generally not for public viewing.  The 3-scrap impulse, which began in 2007, still arises fairly often, and this notebook sometimes has the closest-at-hand page on which to work.  Lately these “sketches” tend to be a bit larger than the earlier ones.  For example, the third one here is 4″x4.5″.

 

 

 

 

 

This is a selection from hundreds of 3-scrap collages done in sketchbooks, the name reflecting the method:  blindly picking three scrap pieces out of my antique or handpainted paper scrap bins and creating the most effective collage possible, with no trading-in of any (initially unwanted) scrap.  These collages, most approximately 3″x3.5″, were begun as one-a-day exercises but became an all-out and sometimes all-day obsession.
