NEW from The Papers Series -

"Fatal Crash #2"
digital collage by Mick Mather
It seems like a lot longer to me but the truth of it is that I posted "Fatal Crash #1" just over a month ago. I'm not going to go into the details of the piece, follow the link back if you're interested in getting the story. At the time, I promised to show this version and here we have it. Between now and then, a new series of work has decidedly been born - more work to follow as I feel my way through this combination of traditional torn paper collage and digital manipulation.

If I didn't know that this has a truly tragic provenance, I would see it as a beautiful cubist abstraction of color and hidden shapes. I think perhaps I prefer it that way. The colors and treatment are very beautiful.

This may be one of the most thoughtful responses I've yet had as regards these particular pieces. I prefer to see it this way too. :)

Disaster can also look beautiful, powerful too. A mere hint of tragedy is well displayed in this pic.

What you say is very true and, as artists, we're often drawn to reinvent the tragic image for one reason or another. Thanks so much! :)
