It has been a joy to collage. The imagery has been collected for quite some time with nothing done because I had a big painting project. And the painting had a very singular, committed idea, whereas this process in contrast feels almost like instant gratification.
I wanted to be able to use contemporary figures, not just women of Hollywood history. I've always thought Lindsay was beautiful and for some reason I care about her plight, much more than her girlfriends Paris and Britney. But maybe I'll use them too.
Something about the black around the head reminds me of a burqa, except of course we get to see her face.
