Tariff of Charges

This collage started with a combination of black silver metallic paint. It is painted in wide brush strokes. The found papers are a combination of music score, college entrance exam table of contents, and an advertisement. There are two modern women in the image. The one woman is only visible as her pink dress. The other woman is a transfer image. It is this woman that really adds the meaning and interest to the collage. She did not become part of the collage for year after the collage was first completed. She is seductive in her appearance and demeanor. She symbolizes a certain type of female. The title "Tariff of Charges" indicates the danger of an entanglement with this beautiful woman. A relationship with her will come at a high price.
