A pair of
constructed collages - each built of many irregular
work in progress
not unlike the assemblage of a puzzle,
ultimately coming together to form the whole.
Torn and found paper scraps were taped and glued together,
then re-torn, rearranged and re-glued, until the final
figure was realized.
These pieces were made in Budapest in the spring of 2012
for the Society
of Hungarian Painters' New Collages invitational exhibition.
The paired works, along with works by 30 Hungarian artists,
at the Vízvárosi
Gallery in Buda.
Figura II returned to Vermont,
while its partner remained in the permanent collection of
Kovats, artist and president of the Society.

In 2014 I revisited the Figura images, making two color
woodcut relief prints
based on the two collaged forms.
The prints can be seen here.
