using materials that were given to me by a friend, all from her father’s building of their house in paradise valley in the 1960s i built the bases of these collages. there were contracts, appliance books, specs, hand written notes, blue prints and invoices. there are still a lot more. 

i drew the images separately with no apparent connection to the story, and frankly, i think there is a disparity here because my people are probably mostly from the 40s and 50s, while the house was built in the mid 60s. 

again i worked on two sets, the first set was more random and used a pink card stock as a base, which shows through much of the papers. the second set i was trying to be matchy matchy and pulled old wall papers that matched the images and pieces of tissue that also blended with the color palettes. 

which do you like better?
