Scream Collage – Work in Progress
I created this image by overlaying a profile picture of me onto a photo of All Saints Way in the North End of Boston. Fortunately I was able to meet the man who created this labor of love. He is a devout Catholic, well into his 80’s, who knows every parish in the greater Boston area. He asked where I was from and he rattled off St. Theresa’s, the local church where my kids spent every Tuesday evening at Scouts. If you get the chance to head over to the North End, make a point to stop off to see the alley and maybe the artist.
The profile picture of me, which I refer to as the scream, was not intended to be a scream, but it was used in a collage inspired by Yoko Ono’s Grapefruit. I took the “selfie” to depict me singing a soprano note (which is impossible). The piece was titled “Voice Piece for Soprano” after the prompt in Ono’s wonderful book.
