Studying a Master: Kurt Schwitters

To each his or her own, and to mine eyes Kurt Schwitters is among the masters of collage. The linear, clear, and occasionally poignant notes that appear in his work, and not uncommon social commentary, appeal to my sensibility.

Most of Schwitters' work used real life scraps of paper, finding meaning in the detritus of his common day and utilizing them in his work--a rarity these days but something to be emulated and explored.
