I'm finding that I'm becoming more and more interested in, and being inspired by, the many different styles of collage art. Dennis Parlante's collages is one of the artists, whose work I am drawn to. Below is some of his work, and a video that I found in researching his work, in which he explains his some of his influences.
I like his term "interesting pieces of paper that no one wants anymore".
I have a lot of those! He also speaks of being influenced by Japanese calligraphy, which I LOVE!
This one uses Asian script, and the center line suggests calligraphy.

This composition is what I call "symmetrical composition" on perhaps could be said that it is based on a grid.

Visit Dennis's website. He has many many more.
Right now I am planning an encaustic collage painting using vintage Asian note books and accounting books, that I was delighted to find online.
