I’m preparing to scan in a set of penguin-themed thoroughly XXX-rated collages in relatively large originals, but mixed in with these in my files are two entirely R-rated collages, SuperPenguin and Potpourri, which I’ll report on here.
Archive for the ‘Collages’ Category
Left out of my AZBlogX posting of the 19th, “Spanish lessons”, was this item (#11 in the set), decidedly homoerotic but not actually X-rated:
A Daddy-Boy scene, illustrating el papá.
Continuing to scan in (mostly) XXX-rated collages, set by set. Five more AZBlogX postings in the last three days, in a variety of styles and tones:
10/17/16: “Baskets of Joy”: 2 sex-heavy collages based on a photo of a basket store
10/18/16: “ALL CAPS”: 11 collages, many powerfully sexual and elaborately staged, using a set of big all-caps letter stickers for their main texts
10/18/16: “Fossils on a field of purple”: 8 collages; background fossil images; lots of body dislays and man-man sex; texts from various sources and artfully arranged stickers
10/19/16: “French lessons”: 10 collages, in pairs, based on Tom of Finland and Bob Mizer images; silly pairings of word and defnition, whimsical animal stickers, but most collages with at least one significant dick in them
10/19/16: “Spanish lessons”: 10 homoerotic collages, most of them simple, and most of them homo-suggestive rather than explicit
A return, after several years, to posting my collages on this blog and on AZBlogX (depending on their X-ratings). Two inaugural postings: one already on my X blog with five collages in the Bangers & Mash series, now one on this blog with two Sausage Tree collages (high phallicity, no actual phalluses):
Another item unearthed today: a collage of sorts (well, an altered poster) from 1998, amended by Chris Ambidge in 2000:
It’s all about clothing and displaying the body.
Another set of Pages, with links to more collage postings. To the existing Page with academic collages (Collages: Academic), I have added two others: Collages: Miscellaneous, mostly with lesbian-related (but not X-rated) collages; and Collages: Gay, with gay-male-related (and mostly X-rated) collages.
(About art rather than language.)
Before Mark Strand became one of the great contemporary American poets, he trained as a painter. At Yale in the nineteen-fifties, he studied under the color theorist Josef Albers, and throughout his life he has continued making paintings, prints, and collages. In recent years, Strand, a former Poet Laureate of the United States and professor of literature, most recently at Columbia, has moved away from writing altogether to focus on art. A collection of his collages, made in Madrid and New York, is currently on display at the Lori Bookstein gallery, in Chelsea.
