I´m not a big Beatles fan and I do not know many songs -
so I just googled the list of all songs from A - Z and found "Carry that weight" and made this collage. Now I see that Michael already did a collage for that title, too - but .... here is my interpretation.
I read the news today, oh boy
four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
Looks a bit like the one last week .. before glueing I played with the elements and made some pictures ...
I thought this one fits the last couplet of the lyrics
(getting a bit nostalgic listening to old Beatles songs ;))
All the text comes from a deconstructed Maxfield Parrish advertisment, circa 1922. Torso and feet are a costume by Benois for the ballet Petroucka. Jello skirt courtesy of a vintage 1950s magazine advertisement. Pasted down on an end paper from a book.
Have you ever been flipping through a magazine, looking at advertisements, and thought, "Hey—I could do better than that!" Well, this is your chance: create an advertisenent—real or fictional, small or large, any language, it's up to you. Have fun!
This week I'm going for "less is more." Any theme, any subject, but no more than three pieces of paper. An all-white or an all-black background doesn't count as a piece of paper, but any other background does. Have fun!
I have always loved the Beatle's song "She's Leaving Home". The doll who appears to be doing the same has been cut out for some time and I decided now was the time to paste her down. I have always loved the artist Ralph Blakelock. The background is an oil on canvas, circa 1885, entitled "The Three Trees". Lastly I felt the collage needed more than the doll and the painting so I pasted them all down on the cover of a brochure I picked up. What you see is a portion of the Société Anonyme Signboard, no date, paint on panel, artist unknown.
Unfortunately Marie couldn't find the right apples so she improvised with balls of wool, but due to her very expressive dancing style these almost got her strangled.
Luckily for us she turned back to knitting warm undergarment again ;))
