Looking forward - a torn paper collage

Looking Forward – Collage About Uncertainty

This is the first of two collages I created, realizing the uncertain path ahead.

Living in the U.S., where we’re not sure what may happen between now and the upcoming change in government, anxiety is reasonable.

For this piece, I chose images that reflect the light and dark elements of this process. Perhaps it was a way of venting – and releasing – the stress of this in-between moment.

I’m choosing to look forward. To find myself… my own ideas, and how I can (literally) realize them, myself.

But, in this work, the past, the darkness, and the fears are on display.

The original piece is 8.5″ x 11″ on poster board.

Materials: poster board, torn magazine pages, Yes Paste, metallic gold marker (lines)
