hindSIGHT #12Welcome to hindSIGHT #12Over 140 pieces of collage art came into The Art Of Collage galleries in September and October. This issue of hindSIGHT revisits just a few of those works.It remains accurate to say that it's easy to select pieces for hindSIGHT because there is so much good work here; and it's difficult to select pieces for hindSIGHT because there is so much good work here.

hindSIGHT #10Welcome to hindSIGHT #10Visual Poetry. It may be easier to say what it is not rather than what it is. Instead of trying to define the genre, however, I thought I'd present here a few collages (from the group archives) that are, as far as I can tell, visual poetry even though the artists probably did not think to call their work that.There is a journal entry HERE about a book and an article on visual poetry. Writing To Be Seen edited by Bob Gumman and Crag Hill, 2001, is another book about visual poetry. Other journal entries with visual poetry resources are HERE and HERE and HERE.unmadeby object000K from Use Thursday wipby object000Quote Meby Liz Cohn
criteriaWay back months ago, some work was done on describing criteria for collages being considered for The Art Of Collage folders. Keep in mind that the list below reflects the thinking and words of several people and we borrowed liberally from other groups here on dA. A list like this can never be complete or exact but I think it provides a general idea about the considerations given collages coming into the group. Some of the qualities we look for in collage art include:strong visual impact – color, composition, content unique, imaginative visual solutions an underlying conceptual or visual framework. intentionality (even if it’s random, it has to be intentional) Some of the things we generally avoid:scrapbooking or journaling that does not have a strong conceptual quality as well pretty or decorative work that lacks a conceptual framework immature, naïve or superficial work work that is computer generated (for example, work made solely by a photo mo
Observations about the group. Part TwoRecently I’ve been thinking about the Featured folder. What do I want to see there? What does anyone want to see there? How can we use it to showcase collage work? Am I making too big of a deal out of this? To explain the difference between the Traditional and Featured folders, I recently wrote that when I look at a piece in the Featured folder I want to be able to say to myself, “Whoa Momma (or Daddy, as you prefer) now there’s what you can do with collage.” For the Featured folder, having flawless composition and color is not enough if the piece does not push at some boundaries or solve a visual problem with unexpected elegance or take me in a deliciously edgy way out of my own comfort zone. Pieces in the Featured folder should captivate me with beautiful subtlety or eye-brow raising boldness. If a piece in the Featured folder has some kind of narrative, even an unknowable narrative, so much the better. One idea bei

Collection: Hammer Time!Share|ArchiveHammer Time!There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

Collection: The LeonidsShare|ArchiveThe LeonidsThe year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati
