“Go ON • NO Joy collage art by John Foster Dyess

This is a collage constructed using various scraps of textures created on a black and white copy machine. I tear these textures into ragged edge shapes and glue them on mount board. I make a black and white copy of the torn shape collage  on a copy machine.
I mount that copy on illustration board and then color the mounted copy using liquid acrylic paint.

go-on-words

The go and the on words were torn out of a local newspaper and then burned on the edges. The word joy was created on my computer,printed and then enlarged several times on a copy machine to create the texture within the letters.

This is the final black and white copy which was painted with liquid acrylic paint. The ON and the NO are the same except inverted . These words created a frame that contain the Go and the Joy words. The final size is 11″ wide x 17″ high

 

 

cutting-edge

“cutting edge” by John Foster Dyess

I like to create visual art by using objects found around my house,and I used a pair of scissors for the subject of “cutting edge”.

copy-machine

I placed a pair of scissors on the glass of a copy machine and made a black and white copy. A lot of detail was lost which I preferred.

cutting-edge-final-copy

I inverted the copy machine image which made the background black and the scissors white. I glued the inverted copy on illustration board and then used sandpaper and an x-acto knife to scratch white texture into the black background. I colored the black and white copy using liquid acrylic paint.
