One Neo Eon

I’ve noticed that I haven’t been using faces in this process journal. It wasn’t a deliberate choice on my part, but that’s how it seems to be unfolding.
I have to admit I go through periods where I prefer the abstract to the figurative when it comes to doing collage. That’s because it can be a challenge to find a face you want to work with. This may have something to do with the fact we’re bombarded with clichéd images in magazines and on TV. It’s a relief to get away from standardized notions of beauty, and focus in on thoughts and feelings. Then again, looking at a face as a map of what’s really going on inside a person might be an interesting challenge.
