I would like to introduce you to my Uncle Harold. I did this collage of him using all the papers I could find on him. I have included copies of the telegram my grandparents received when he was MIA; the Book of Operations of the flights he took part in; his obituary etc. I included a photo family photo. He is the little boy standing in front of my grandfather.
The photos are mounted to a 16 x 20 board of masonite with matte medium. I didn’t have a brayer so I used an old rolling pin. I used glazes of acrylics to push parts of the collage into the background and bring parts forward. I enjoyed doing this collage and will do some more on other family members.
