Art I'm Making: Recent Collage

This is Untitled Collage No. 107 (Santa Rosa), something I finished during the Art at the Source Open Studios event in June. It uses some plum-colored paper I made recently and scraps from several months back. In this one, I like the tension between two possible readings—one entirely abstract (the reading I intended and the one I prefer), the other vaguely representational, taking this as a view of a ship at the horizon, floating on a plummy sea. In the representational reading there's something that evokes travel poster design of a bygone era.
