This just in: Putting it together through paper collage

Afghan Girl by Steve McCurry

Afghan Girl by Steve McCurry

Last week I went to a house party and was struck by a piece of art in the host’s entry way. It was a paper collage made of torn magazines that depicted the famous National Geographic photograph of a young girl in Afghanistan. It’s one of my favorite photographs of all time and this torn paper version brought it to life in a whole new way. I love how the artists took a found object we all have piled up in our homes and turned it into something brand new.

Inspired by the piece, I started to look through my giant stack of magazines and separate the pages by their primary color. I felt an urge to tear the paper to pieces and put it back together in a whole new way. I started googling how-to on paper collage and chose a few images on which to model a collage of my own. I even picked out a space to hang it on my apartment wall.

Sometimes art just grabs you and won’t let you go until you do something about it. That’s how I feel about this collage project. I’ll share a picture of it when it’s done.
