David J. Delay
drawings and collage on paper
About the Work
I approached this large window space as an “illustrated collage.” I wanted to create six drawings that would be strong compositionally and could stand-alone. I designed them so when arranged together, the whole would also have a strong composition and read as one complete piece. I played with scale and perspective within each drawing because I wanted them to somehow live in their own worlds. But still they are related thematically. And I added cutout leaves to fly through the piece and tie them all together and add to the idea of this being an illustrated collage
