Mixed Media Collage Art Portrait Painting "I Create" by Intuitive Artist Joan Fullerton




Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. Steve Jobs

Behold, Observe, Create

I Create, 9x11 collage on paper


This small collage was half finished when I discovered it in my stacks of remnants. Newspaper pages once used as a palette had been glued next to a museum ticket from Italy. My interest and curiosity were aroused.  I added the number 5 (my lucky number), a column shape with words from another collage, the coffee cup, the top portion of the face and the price tag. What appeared was a portrait of my inner artist. 

Upon deeper contemplation I discovered metaphorical qualities to be admired in my Muse...

  1. The face is 1/2 a Renaissance portrait (rebirth of the arts) and the eyes are my granddaughter Elise's (innocence). 
  2.  The words below the face say MY ALL with the Y reaching high as a tree. 
  3.  My lucky number 5 refers to serendipity.
  4.  It appears that a fishing line extends to the green pond of abundant possibilities, and this curve circles back in the threads of the price tag with no amount...as in priceless.
  5. The red word Occupation showed up in the corner of the pages from a local newspaper, and next to it, an image of a window
  6.  The coffee cup which was added on purpose over the column, would suggest, ritual.

Lifting a portion of the collaged material to re-glue,I discovered a photograph of many angels....what a divine surprise!

Bridging Worlds with Mixed Media Collage

Bridging Worlds, 16x20 on cradled panel

This title for my collage is perfect!  "Bridging Worlds" is exactly what we do when we juxtapose images of different places, times, subjects or attitudes. We take pieces of the world and move them around until they resonate and create new meaning, a whole new never-before-seen reality. The stories and images resulting from my process are often ambiguous or mysterious. Ambiguity offers the viewer many options as to what the "story" might be.

Another reason this is a great title is that a Xerox of the Rio Grande Bridge outside of Taos, NM is embedded within the composition.
