bottom left: today's collage

yesterday's collage seemed busy to me. too much going on. no focal point, nowhere for the eye to rest. i'll wait and see how i feel about today's collage.

i've been looking a lot at picasso's cubist studies, especially the drawings in black and white. as well, i've been reviewing tsarouchis' career, going through the excellent benaki museum catalogue from his retrospective in 2010.
