Last one made on my trip through Romania, Ukraine and Moldova. Simple one but I hope full of expression. Made in the SirGara de Nord Hotel in Bucharest. 14x20cm.
Played around with the format and composition. Chose for a slighty smaller collage. Instead of 19x27cm I used 14x20cm. That is the inner side without the cardboard frame.
I thought I had it all figured out. All the images were spread out. Part of a building from Lvov from a 1958 book, pieces from a few Russian books for children, fish from an aquarium book and a few from a cook book. Afterall I needed a few hectic hours. 19x27cm.
Made in the Cosmos Hotel in Chisinau. From books bought in Odessa-Ukraine. 20x30cm.
Started this one in Odessa after buying the ingredients on the Starkonny flea market in Odessa-Ukraine. Traveled by train to the Cosmos Hotel in Chisinau-Moldova where I finished it. 19x27cm.
Just finished this one. Carried the idea with me all the time. I already had it cut out in Odessa-Ukraine and finished it in Chisinau-Moldova. SOLD to miss Yoke from the Netherlands. 19x27cm.
Another one made in Odessa. Found a book of France from 1958. Nearly all ingredients are from that book. 19x27cm.
19×27. Diplome of Honor of Lenin with Ladies fashion from Leningrad 1964-1965 and images from several Russian child books from the seventies.
Background from Moscow book and book about Lvov. Girls from Russian books of the seventies. Legs and feet from a fashion magazine from Leningrad 1964-1965.
Churches from Moscow, an eye from my Russian medicine book replaces the sun and several fish from one of my aquarium books. 24x30cm with 14x20cm cut out.
