Concentration

 

Here you see the early stage of a cut-paper collage, one in a series on dramas involving  humans, animals, and others (like witches).  Since I often write stories before creating the collages, I’m starting to add little books to go with the collages. The story for this one is done; finishing the collage comes next. It is still in an experimental stage; nothing glued down. The next stage requires concentration, and that’s been is short supply of late.

About Lillian-Trettin

I grew up in the Appalachian "Bible Belt" of East Tennessee in the southern United States, listening to banjo music and gospel lyrics as well as the Beatles. As a kid, I was curious about religious rituals like speaking in tongues and snake handling but resistant to the fundamentalist thinking they involved. Flannery O'Connor's tales of religious fanatics, con men, bigots, and the spiritually bereft or ambivalent resonate for me. Despite having traveled widely and lived in other places, I am (as so many Southerners claim to be) permanently "South haunted." I returned to making art full time in 2011, following a career as a teacher, researcher, and consultant and after raising two sons. I’m convinced the delay enriched rather than impeded my growth as an artist.
