newspaper collage for my design I class
i saw this painting on the cover of a newsletter and it just grabbed me. i instantly saw the face in some sort of repetition and knew i wanted to work with it. i grabbed about a dozen copies of the newsletter and set to cutting. the hardest part was the arrangement- i had a zillion different ideas and too many of them looked good. i think i spent three or four days just moving the heads around and layering before i hit on this. gluing took another day, as i wanted it to be as close to perfectly flat as possible. the effect was achieved, and even in person, it's hard to tell that there are several different elements, that it wasn't originally painted this way.
i call it "Lovechild" because friends and i came to the conclusion that she's the lovechild of David Bowie and Annie Lennox. XD
