This has been the longest delay between posts on this blog (unfortunately). For that, I apologize to those of you who have shown interest in this blog. It's has been weird for me to have taken such a long hiatus from posting and from creating new collages. BUT, I have been concentrating my efforts on my academic work which has included presenting a paper at this year's annual gathering of the Southern Humanities Council (in Louisville, KY). I presented a paper there entitled "Confessions of a collagist: Appropriation of "private" images for "public" art. I also read two poems related to collage at that conference. I also have recently published my second article in "Kolaj", THE magazine of collage as a fine arts medium. Hopefully some of you are subscribers. If you aren't, you should consider it. With my co-author, Dr. Tyson Kreiger, we published an article in the journal "Psychological Reports" entitled "Nostalgia and art perception". Just a little explanation of what I've been up to... the writing and scholarly side of my "total approach" to psychology, collage and the visual arts. The good news is that I was in my "studio" last night for several hours and will be posting some images of collage sketches SOON! I will also be updating you on a very interesting project that I will be working on this week!
