Collage Mixed Media ~ Woman’s Ideal of Man #2
his collage is part of a series of three designs I did based on a chapter from the book The Perfect Woman
, which was written in 1901. I used a page from the book as a background and then layered vintage images of men, beasts, and machinery that gently make fun of the author’s view of men during that time period. The surface is very textured through the use of gel mediums, tissue paper, image transfers, and other found items. Shades of ocher, burnt umber, and red were used to create the rich rusty color.
