Radical Departure / by Alyson Khan

HeartsMy previous collages had strong towers, well-balanced, albeit precariously, but balanced, and calm nested birds. Mostly horizontal and vertical lines... Come in Radical Departure...suddenly the birds have wings, are un-nested, and the towers are gone--in their place are jagged "branches" and freaky towers that are about to topple. There are sharp points lining a lot of the horizontal landings--making them un-landable. Triangles and diagonals.

I know it is a reflection of the changes happening within my being. More freedom. More trust in life. It is always this way. The studio is the mirror...maybe that's why it's so hard to go in there sometimes.
