Weve been making collages with pictures from several identical issues of a Spanish fashion magazine Steve had some pictures in. This is one I just made tonight.
What a bitch to cut out all those sheep. Jasmine had a great title, which I now forgot. Something along the lines of "Sheep erupting from the giant blue phallus of time" but I dont know if thats really what its about. I only just now made the connection of the apple to the golden apple of Eris or Discordia the goddess of chaos. I did that totally unintentionally. I think it isnt a portrait of doom, but of liberation: the sheep escape the bonds of time and head towards the promise of the golden apple, but beware the temptation and chaotic possibilities of the lure of "Kallisti" ("for the most beautiful one"). That is the unspoken warning. I didnt intend any of that stuff when I made it. I only knew it would be a collage about time, one that didnt favor time.
I only just now realized, too, that "collage" comes from the French word "colle" which means "glue"! Wow!
