  • Gorgeous! I love this..
    I should really try making collages/photomontages sometime.

  • Richard

    love these.

  • Love the second and third!

  • Beautiful. I need to make more collages. I like the use of paint in a collage too

    Ah, though I often love minimal collage work, these throw me off a bit. Perhaps it is because the “thoughts” in the given “orbs” are already so much within the given language of the figures themselves (perhaps, save for number 5 here). I suppose the title is what really bugs me. This kind of choice to manipulate something around a figure’s head is such a common move in art and I am fascinated by artists who mark halos, cover faces and invert figures. Really, we have been doing this in art for centuries. For me the overtness of the thought bubble lacks he really lacks intrigue. I do really enjoy the color palette in this series, though.

      hmm, I didn’t think of the title until I read your comment, at first I just saw the orbs as an homage to halos in early christian art (one of my favorite pieces of iconography everrrr) but I don’t know if the idea of the halos being thought bubbles is all that bothersome, just different, its still gorgeous

  • susana

    pretty amazing!

  • Dig this collage style, I like the grunge brush touch.

  • Awesome style, very inspiring :]

  • Reminds me of a piece I did a couple of years ago. But these are way nicer. Stay black, M V H Waldo
