    Do you only use a computer or do you find images in magazines to collage with?

    • Hello, Fig says:

      hey vincent, all the images on here are handmade and then scanned on. i guess some have a digital look cos i saturate the colours sometimes.. happy weekend :)

    Love this collage. I have the same technique as you. All my collages are cut-and-paste. I then digitally manipulate them, often saturating the colours.

    Your work is always a pleasure Fig, have you ever heard of Hannah Hock? Her work is from early 1900′s, maybe more around 1920. However she used photography for collage, possibly montage..i love her work , and many of your works remind me of hers, with a fresh twist of course.

    • Hello, Fig says:

      hey adele, i’d heard the name before.. just googled. love those early dada things. the way she constructed her faces was great; thanks for the compliment! [your photos look fantastic btw] :D

      • adelemiranda says:

        Gee thank-you so much fig, sorry about the late reply. I haven’t logged in for a while, its not a lack of interest, just a lack of available time unfortunately. I’m hoping a day will come when time becomes more available.

      • Hello, Fig says:

        time is our most precious commodity.. did someone famous say that in a film idk ;-) :D

      • adelemiranda says:

        Well, well Fig, I wish I had watched that film. Maybe when I come o/s we can watch together?
