Inspired by collage

Using collages as an intermediate part of the creative process I have done an aquatint and a drawing. The first one was created based on the the faces I have been morphing by changing the features likes eyes and lips. This drawing is created with a pen.

The collage for the aquatint was born, because of the photograph from the National Geographic of a woman with the most sad-angry eyes. As you might have noticed (or not) the imagery of the open mouth keeps coming to the artwork I create. I am still looking for the correct interpretation in words for its persistence. In this work the insects are representative of words. Would love to read your interpretations.
