|Collage 8 of 31|

Our Way – digital collage using vintage magazine scans, patterned paper scans, text and vintage postcard scans.

Another cameo-like collage today. I actually created this while watching ChristopherOdd’s playthrough of We Happy Few. It may have influenced me a little.

Coming Back, ink, acrylic paint, dry pastel on paper, 15 x 18cm

This is the next artwork in my Gotye Project.


In this piece I wanted to represent two figures- one lonely and missing the other, filled with thoughts about what they are doing, where they are and the uncertainty that goes along with it. The other falling through these thoughts and fading to a vague recollection.

The grey, blue and black hues symbolise these feelings- the colours are darker further away from the figure representing darker thoughts looming. The figure is also slowly being consumed by darker thoughts of the self at the same time.

The other figure exists within the thoughts but is white, vague and also fading into the surrounding thoughts.

You’ve been gone so long you’re fading
And it takes all the time I
can find just retaining
Thoughts of things we did
while you were here
But I know you will return my dear

(I did upload this a few minutes ago but saw something on the piece that needed changing so I altered it slightly and re-scanned it)
