365 Collages | Week 25 | Creating a Synthesis

Synthesis means a combination of components or elements to form a connected whole. I think that is what collage is about. Trying to take a jumple of very different elements and making it into a connected whole: something new. Very much like a lot of other things, many more than you might think about. Like a family, a home, a painting, a book.

As we create (everything from a family unit, a party or artwork) we’re always looking for new things to add into the mix. Writers take their thoughts, impressions, ideas and words and mix them together into a “connected whole”. I do it with little paper scraps, making collages.

What components do you want to bring together today?

Here are my newest artwork, collage 169 to 175 this year.

    A Blend of Garden Flowers is my favorite. I love them all but you asked for my favorite. It’s because of the colors and the flowers. I love how that little bit of pink plaid sneaks in there now and then. take care ~~rita
