Once again I will introduce some work by a lovely artist I met at my Ragdale residency. Tisa Batchelder is a mainly a musician, but she is currently working on a collage project. She has been making a collage every day for 304 days and posts them on her blog, http://collage-a-day.blogspot.com/. Though the project may seem deceptively simple, being able to see someone’s daily ritual makes it personal. It’s clear that the compositions have become more sophisticated over time. Collage-a-day is a reminder of why collage is such a neat medium: the way it flattens space (especially when viewed on a computer screen), and the way disparate scraps can be brought together in one composition.
Check out Tisa’s past collages, and check out new ones as she approaches Day 365: http://collage-a-day.blogspot.com/.
