Very nice with its´ simple but refined composition and textures , i could see it as a part of the ´two piece ´ exhibition , but there seems to be few pieces more

Thank you. This is one of those pieces that, even a few years out, I still love. Usually I wind up disliking earlier work, and it's cool to have a piece that withstands my inner critic.

it's interesting to see the differences between collages made by men and women... yours are very feminine :)
LauraTringaliHolmes Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2010
I get dinged for that all the time, as feminine is often used as a euphemism for "sentimental" and somehow "less serious" than the masculine or abstract. But I am getting the impression that to you this is not a bad thing, so thanks! At heart I am a storyteller....
Thanks for the thought-provoking comment!

(laugh)... of course not "sentimental" or "less serious"... :) and I seldom use euphemism or politically correct tone... since my first language is not english, I do my best to pick up the most approximate words to describe my feelings, exact as much as it can be with my poor verbally means... :)
I have the feeling that we're both at the approximately same age, so after all these years, "feminine" for us must be a comfortable place (as much as it is complex) :) I know here (DA) women who does collages, and theirs are more "masculine"... I know, definition of "masculine" and "feminine" is needed, since time's changings and stigmas... but, as for you, I think what I really tried to say is, that you're not ashamed of being a woman... it shown in your works :)

as for storyteller - I'll learn to read you in time... I'm not so used with collage's language... it doesn't speak directly to me, you know, intuitively... I always thought it's like riddles, need to invest time and thought to decipher... I react more intuitively to abstracts and impressions...
