Homage to Dada series.


This series of ten prints is a homage to the Dadaists.  The Dadaists used scissors and glue rather than paint brushes and paints to express their views of modern life through images presented by the media. A variation on the collage technique, photomontage utilized actual or reproductions of real photographs printed in the popular press.  In Cologne, Max Ernst used images from World War I to illustrate messages of the destruction of war.  I find my image using Goggle much like the early Dadaist used media images.  I print the black and white images on 11”X17” presentation paper and use a Sharpie to enhance the image with personal symbolism.  The image guides my imagination and provides a starting point for the spontaneous drawing.

The Giclée prints are 9”X12”, printed on heavy archival paper.  Only fifty of each signed and numbered print will be available.  Individual prints are 25.00 each and a completed set of ten is 200.00. Shipping costs will be added to the price. Please email your interest.
