Florence Weisz  – “Yellow Feathers Tale” collage with photos, gold, joss paper and feathers

“YELLOW FEATHERS TALE” was part of my response to Donald Trump’s absurd election campaign, his obnoxious persona and his peculiar vanity. Unfortunately, he has not changed since being elected president and my view of him as expressed in this collage remains relevant. In this work I have combined art-making with clutter-clearing: my efforts to pare down my possessions and create new artwork with some of the useless stuff I have been collecting for years and years. I finally found the perfect use for ye-low feathers I have been saving since 1982 when we made a Woodstock halloween costume for one of our sons.This collage fits somewhere between my two ongoing collage series“Cautionary Tales: The Blurry Line Between Collecting and Hoarding” http://florenceweisz.com/portfolio/cautionar.htmlAND “Presidential Manipulations” http://presidentialmanipulations.com/45/index.html
