a selection from the series of 'one-cut' mixed media newspaper collages (6 x 9), Jeanne Liotta (2001-2008)

'One-cuts' describes Liotta's collage technique in which she cuts around the perimeter of a selection and lifts the piece out whole from the daily newspaper, excised as-is, with texts as attached to the image. The project is an interaction with the discoverable cosmic landscape both as news and as poetry, using The New York Times/ Science Times editions when they published the Hubble and other NASA images of astronomical interest during the first decade of the 21st century.
