Oklahoma Collage – by Lydia Cheshewalla
This collection of collages uses renewal and chance as a method of research, as well as meditation, with each new piece created partially from the saved scraps of collages that came before and arranged without pre-design or plan. Each collage represents a process of acknowledging thoughts and feelings as they arise and their transformation into embodied radical joy.
