This paper collage abstract art is full of fun colorful rectangles from old books. Care was taken to assure complimentary colors and values. Aptly titled 'Ten' due to the several number 10s throughout the piece, and because it's a TEN in our eyes!
Built on a book cover, the pieces were hand cut then glued to the cardboard substrate. The back of the collage is covered with rice paper.
Every collage I make is unique and different. Yours will be signed and dated, then carefully wrapped in a protective cellophane sleeve and shipped in a rigid mailing envelope.
Inspired by stacks of discarded old books and papers with interesting text, images, graphics and history, old books are deconstructed, then bits and pieces are hand cut and sorted by color. I'll experiment with the design until I create an aesthetically pleasing arrangement. I'll let it rest for a few days, then return and adjust the design if needed. Oftentimes, ink, pencil and thread are added to provide additional interest and texture.

Great condition! Remember, the inherent nature of handmade collage art is the charm and imperfection of the ingredients used. You will see loose threads, bumps, and surface wear that are all part of the design.
