self portrait collage

Using my self portraits and the materials I have been working with to create my skins I wanted to create a different piece of work. I decided to make a collage from my photographs by cutting out old work prints and adhering them to plexiglas. I chose to use Plexiglas to sandwich the images so that it was a sturdy structure but also transparent in the negative spaces. I began by coated the Plexiglas in modge podge, it looks like white paint. Then after arranging the images I placed them onto the plexi, I sandwiched the images with another piece of plexi to help adhere them along with clips to hold it together until it was dry. The modge dries clear but you can see the layers, bubbles, and texture from it though the Plexiglas.
