I then began printing the little images with various colored inks; and then I began printing them with squares of color for the background and a different color ink for the image. This then morphed into attaching collections of these small images in patterns to form larger images.
I have re-created digitally here the type of visual images which I originally created by making numerous little colored woodcuts of Baba's face and then cutting and attaching them in patterns that appealed to me. I mostly did small pieces similar to the two below. But since I can create similar images digitally, I thought to create the larger piece digitally at the bottom.
Truth in advertising demands that the idea to make these collages of Baba's face in different colors originated at a gallery exhibit where the artist had used actual postage stamps in patterns. The resulting art pieces were really wonderful. So this is my version of that idea.
