After completing this collage, I stepped back and try to understand the story behind it, as I do with all of my collage. This one brought to mind the idea of flight, of wings, but there was an interesting dynamic or juxtaposition of this beautiful display of freedom but also this incredible constraint, Indicated by the interconnected hands. Perhaps it is a model pose Dior-esque like the 1950s, Perhaps it is a sign of prayer, regardless the dynamic between the gripped hands and the dance-like supple and flowing arms with the head tossed back...perhaps in ecstasy, is a wonderful combination.
