Art in Motion: Collage Study

Work Space by Stephanie Hopkins

Yesterday, I didn’t spend whole lot of time on my art because I had some writing projects to complete. However, I did create this little collage in my sketch book and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I wanted my emphasis to be on the Juxtaposition that contrast, yet have a theme.

When I started looking through images, I hadn’t really decided on the actual images and I was looking through several different magazines. I had chosen other images previously but decided to swap out a couple of them to create this piece. This one really speaks to me and has given me inspiration to further explore the contrast and position of collage. Perhaps the next one will have more detail and depth. This style of collage is a great exercise and teaches you technique by using a variety of images in its simplest form.
