Mini collage work
ATCs or Artist Trading Cards are miniature works of art the size of baseball/hockey trading cards (2 1/2" x 3 1/2" or 63mm x 89mm). They can be produced in any medium and are usually traded or exchanged, rather than sold. They can be stored in standard card collector pocket sleeves or sheets (sure beats having to find places to hang or store large canvases!). The ATC movement was started by a guy named Stirnemann from Zurich, Switzerland, and today, you can find ATC exhibits and trading sessions throughout the world and on-line.
There was a short, intense period where I whipped up some small ATC-inspired canvases, using photos of my friends' kids. Then, for whatever reason, I stopped, tidied away the glue and paper and moved on to other things.
