A Pensive Pug

 

June was a busy month for me, and I just now got around to reading the May/June issue of Pug Talk magazine. I’m glad I did because there was an article about Peter Clark, a collage artist whose work often features dogs. “Pensive Pug,” above, is just one of his amazing collages. Each piece is created of assemblages of found paper objects: old postage stamps, postcards, maps, labels, playing cards, cancelled tickets, and what have you. There are clever touches. A bulldog’s nose is made from a photo of that old bulldog Winston Churchill. A Scottish terrier is crafted from vintage maps of Scotland. For a peek at more of his dog portfolio, click here. And his book, Paperwork: Peter Clark is due out in late August.
