What is the sense of farewell in collage?
Is it the series of goodbyes you say to friends and loved ones as they pass out of this existence into the next? Is it the glued-together memories of your lifetime? Is it the litany of all the things you can no longer do?
Or is the sense of farewell something more delicate, more subtle, and yet more pervasive than these? Is it the sense of standing still in the eternal moment, while all you have known recedes from you and accumulates to make up what is called the past? A collage of all you no longer own. The sense of letting go of all you thought belonged to you, finding that none of it did, except your awareness of the one moment, the point of stillness in which you stand.
