I've done this style of work before but not to the extend of pushing back the papers. I as I like to say creating the history of the piece. More is always revealed as you look closer and longer..but so of us me included don't spend the time to look if it doesn't catch out eye we done with it.. so a whole lot of the time we really should look longer at a piece of art especially the mixed media kind there is so much going on in the layers...You know the dysfunctional part to the intimacy in relation to the way the edges met up or how the colors blend together. Then everyone once in a while there's a slap of reality right in your face...What am I describing? good question, how about the history of a piece of creation, be it human beings to how a plant grows..Creating isn't a smooth process, or as we would like to think it is...Where did we get that idea from... I really like to think that there's beauty in the dysfunction that has to be accepted in order for the layers to build up.
Some of my past Free Flow Collage works as I call them.
Acrylics add to the surface after it was sprayed with water. Then the plastic wrap was laid on and picked up to create a mono print effect..it's fun to do but if now aware can got to far..got to stop just before you want to do it one more time.. You can see the pastel lines in there. I make this mark so that I can have some kind of guidance..I many not flow it but I like to think of it as path that some walked before and now I come to it and see if this is where I will go.
I used white and black pastels.
