M for Merz & Marilyn
Patricia, thanks for the challenge and the link to the NY Times article about a fascinating artist--This quote reminds me of the PageKraft concept:
"Schwitters made no categorical distinctions between his art (painting, collage, sculpture, design, installation), his writing (poetry, essays, children’s stories) and his performances. To him they were all integral parts of a one-man cultural movement called Merz, which he invented, deriving the name from Kommerz, German for commerce."
I chose the theme of tragedy for two reasons:
1) I began this piece with a scanned section of a mixed media collage on canvas I did last year with the same theme.
2) Both Schwitters and Marilyn Monroe struggled with an unfulfilled need for belonging. To read more, here's the link to the NY Times article:
