I do not know what got into me at the end of the year, but I felt compelled to reach 500 collages in 2011. My original goal was more modest, about a collage a day. I tried to keep this pace up for the days "lost" for a holiday etc. by doubling the number of collages in the days that followed. To my amazement, I did not get out of inspiration, while in 2010 some doubts tapped me. In 2011, no hesitations, questions, as to baptise the facebook page berni's collage machine, stating that the machine never stopped. Even during the 10 days stay in Paris at the end of the year, I sat down every morning for a collage session - except January 1st of course. With this constant rate, the creation took place almost naturally and without great interrogations. Is this the state of grace? My collages are they now more superficial? I do not think so. I just let go the play of associations and forms, without asking questions. One episode illustrates what I just wrote: making greeting cards for Christmas. Taking very elongated greeting cards representing boats of Lake Geneva, I began to transform them in a frenzy that lasted about an hour. And the result pleased me, despite some less successful cards: 15 different small collages - abstract or figurative, sort of exercises in style.
So the word freedom is the one I would I apply to 2011. And I hope to continue this in 2012.




Rétrospective 2011
Je ne sais ce qui m’a pris vers la fin de l’année, mais je me suis senti obligé d’arriver à 500 collages en 2011. Mon objectif initial était bien plus modeste, à peu près un collage par jour. J’ai essayé de tenir ce rythme, rattrapant les jours « perdus » par des vacances etc. en doublant le nombre de collages dans les jours qui suivaient. A mon grand étonnement, je n’ai pas eu de panne d’inspiration, alors qu’en 2010 des doutes m’avaient parfois taraudé. En 2011, point d’hésitations, d’interrogations, au point de baptiser le site facebook berni’s collage machine, en précisant que la machine ne s’arrêtait jamais. Même durant la semaine passée à Paris en cette fin d’année, je me suis assis tous les matins pour une séance de collage – à l’exception 1er janvier bien sûr. Avec ce rythme constant, la création s’est faite presque naturellement et sans grandes interrogations. Est-ce l’état de grâce ? Mes collages en sont-ils devenus plus superficiels ? Je ne crois pas. Je me suis juste laisser aller au jeu des associations et des formes, sans me poser de questions. Un épisode illustre bien ce que je viens d’écrire : la fabrication de cartes de vœux pour Noël. Prenant des cartes très allongées représentant des bateaux du Lac Léman, je me suis mis à les transformer dans une frénésie qui a duré une heure environ. Et le résultat m’a enchanté, malgré quelques cartes moins réussies : 15 petits collages variés – abstraits ou figuratifs, comme des exercices de style.
C’est donc le mot liberté que je retiens pour 2011. Et j’espère bien continuer dans cette voie en 2012.

Blog on art, centered on collage. It is meant as a sort of logbook of my creative work.
