November collages: celebrating Cage

Monday, November 12th, 2012

Grateful for everything John Cage this centennial year. Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco had many wonderful events. And so appreciated Kay larson's wonderful new biography of Cage: Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism, and the Inner Life of Artists. Here are three of the collages I've made this month, a couple with quotes taken from the bio.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This quote, too, from the Kay Larson bio. Wonderful Jasper Johns exhibit at SFMOMA now -- November 2012

I'm loving Cohen's new CD and some of his lines inspired these collages.

Rick’s Flaneur Exercises

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

WritersCorps teaching artist, Rick D'Elia -- inspired by the vision, writing, and practices of wandering walkers -- is sharing what he's finding with the Apprentices. I joined the group on February 15 and we walked from the San Francisco Arts Commission into the neighborhood noting whatever struck us as lost. Here are a few of the collages I made in response to that afternoon.
