I got this one comment on an art print site, about my work:
<<"Also, I've seen work like yours on exhibition before but the components of the collages are usually also created by collage artist. After having a closer look, it appears the source elements for your collages are mostly found and not created by you. Is this correct? If so, can you sell collages pieced together of other artist's work, even if you add a bit of paint to them? I'm not saying you can't, because I really don't know. I've been doing some photomontage but only using my own images. I'm curious is anyone's work can be used for work that's for resale. Or, did you paint the images within the collages? Or, get them from public domain sources?”>>
Of course I answered him "Yes, You are correct about my materials" and "Yes, You can sell them", and "I use only copyright free images." But my point is what a cool way to ask a tough question!
He never actually says “All you do is glue them together, right? Will people buy that? Are you allowed to do that?”
I love it!
I don’t know, I thought you’d get a kick out of it, though!
