landscape IV  (coloured paper, 25cm x 32cm)

I quite often have a parallel activity going on alongside oil painting, something related but different, to try and stop going stale.  At the moment that means making collages - ripping and cutting paper makes you think about making images differently.  Ground and motif become the same thing, and you can't get bogged down detail.  It feels to me to be a bit closer to sculpture, manipulating materiels and physically arranging them.  I have been using some of my own paintings as a starting point, re-exploring compositional elements and pushing them somewhere new.
