In May I had the privilege of working with almost 250 students and, because of their interesting projects, I decided to create a type of puzzle painting. My crow was inspired by the view outside the window and I kept thinking of each of these pieces as a separate abstract work but then, as they come together the work becomes a collaboration of sorts to become a whole new painting.
I keep thinking about creating this project on a larger scale and wonder if it would work as well. In any case, these are created from 9-4x4 inch canvases and I really like how they have turned out. To read a bit about the collaboration during Convergence (a Beakerhead inspired event) visit here and here.
