Cut & Paste: collage and my new way of working

I have been taking great pleasure in creating new images by cutting and pasting. Free local newspapers and magazines in London have  extensive colour pages.  There are also  elements in the work  from the magazines I buy.  The work is quite small-scale at present but I recall with pleasure a large work that Picasso created from rolls  of wallpaper which I saw at the Musee Picasso and hope my ideas can develop to such a scale.  Another sublime reference is the Matisse cut-outs  I saw at the Tate Modern,London. A lot can happen with paper & scissors. Below, too,  are a few words on my working process described in the manner of an old-style poison-pen letter.
