Highlighted (blue) IMAGES buttons below give links to digital (2d/flat) collages created by baker b. starting in 2004. Originals are formatted as either png or bitmap files; copies as jpegs usually. They were primary composed using Microsoft Paint, although some work, especially in earlier collages, was accomplished in Adobe Photoshop.
Overall inclusive series so far, which include from 10 to 60 or more individual collages apiece, are Bogota (2 legitimate series from 2016-present), Boos (2015), Red Umbrella (2014-2015), Falmouth (2014), Gilatona-Lis (2013), and the Art 10×10 (6 series from 2004 to 2009).
Collages found on this site are not for sale, and are exhibited for educational purposes only, abiding by fair use principles.
Some collages in various series combine with neighboring ones to form rudimentary animations. Some band together to create diptychs, triptychs, even tetraptychs.
All collage series names so far come from places in or near Jasper County, Illinois, a number of which are shown on this map. The reasons for this are mysterious, since I’ve never been to the location and, nothing against the county itself, but it’s a fairly nondescript area of our country.
“… THE OTHER HALF”
Highlighted (red) ANALYSIS buttons below give links to interpretations of many of the same collage series or sub-series. These analyses are mostly written out at the same time or shortly after the act of forming the images themselves. Creating the collages is only part 1 of the process. Interpreting is the second half for me, and keeps the production flow going as well. I see them like dreams to be scrutinized for deeper meaning.
