Collage with text

Following through with trying new ways to use Procreate and iColorama on the iPad, this collage incorporates newspaper clippings and overlays of color and pattern to make up the composition. Each clipping was placed on a separate layer and arranged at a fixed angle. Under, between and above the clippings are layers of color and texture. I wanted to try using newspaper clippings as objects in the composition and since text is instinctively read by the viewer, I thought it might be more compelling if it was political in nature.

The altered versions done in iColorama, in some cases, add a harsh immediacy to the design; a brusque touch of political edge. In some instances they also create a more “postery” image or are completely transformed into a different composition.
