Throwing bolas in the celestial playground by 

A Chinese rider in the style of an argentinian gaucho, herding celestial cattle.

Original: traditional collage, with painted (acrylics, oil waxes and water pastels) and glued elements (magazine photographs, gauze and colored tapes) on paper. 28X42cm

Featured in DADA LAND in August 2012
Featured in ABSTRACT SURREAL ART in August 2012

This is a new concept, totally hand-made, for my previous collage of the Chinese rider. I must admit that I am quite more at ease doing things by hand than working on a computer, where there is still a long journey ahead for me to feel confident.

    but where is the dragon … perhaps conceptually the dragon is not needed …

    the image is [ even without a dragon bueatiful

  • Oh, mxara, I know you loved that dragon…. but that’s how virtual life is… dragons appear and disappear with no consideration at all! :)) Thanks,dear, for your interest.

    A wonderful “fancy!”
    Your work certainly does not look like you are lacking in confidence… love both the Chinese Riders.

  • Thanks so much, margot, I’m so new to collage that I’m really trying my hand in different directions, to find my “way” if such a thing is ever found…
