"By their links ye shall know them..." - Anonymous, 1996
    Talbot's evolving List of Collage Art Links, which includes sites dedicated to or related to collage, now has its own website.


    Talbot's evolving List of Visual Arts Links, which includes a variety of sites from the Art Deadlines List to the Uffizi in Florence, has grown too long fopr this page and now has a page of its own. I have moved it to its own page. --JT 8.3.97

    These truly exceptional websites are among Talbot's favorites. Many are interactive. Paris based painter Nicolas Clauss has left traditional painting to use the Internet as his canvas. The results are worth the visit. Posted 1.16.02 ./ Suggested by Ginny Herzog. One has to apply for admission to this chaos-filled website. Caution: If you are fortunate enough to be admitted you may get stuck here for a long time. The deceptively commercial-looking interface of this site hides some truly creative work. Posted 5.1.03 ./ Suggested by Loel Barr. James Malvern has approached "collage" from a different perspective. His evolving in-motion collage can lead you on a journey to unexpected places. / Posted 1.13.03

    Modern Living at The animations on this site are both entertaining and profound. Also see Nails at Both suggested by Nate Eisenberg This site is elegant, provocative, and interactive. Posted 5.1.03 ./ Suggested by Loel Barr. An involved (and involving) collage-based site where the site itself is as much the art form as the work on it. The fact that this site has a commercial tie-in doesn't alter the high quality of the works found there. Posted 5.7.03 ./ Suggested by Loel Barr The website of new media artist Ted Warnell where many of his "poems by Nari" works are displayed. Also a variety of reflections on art as process. To learn a little more about what "new media" means | Click Here |
    / Belatedly Posted 11.01.04

    This list includes a selection of sites which don't fit into the categories above.  

      Ashland WWWeb: A link to Ashland, Oregon - one of the more potent and harmonious centers of the universe. Created by my friend ellenHelga Weiland. -JT

      Hudson Valley Network: Hudson Valley Net is my friend Joe Bigelow's evolving creation which will tell you what's happening, who's who, where to find it, and when things are going on in the Hudson Valley Region of New York State. -JT A website focusing on the activities of my friend Carol Ohmart Behan, an author, lover of labyrinths, and a leader of pilgrimages to Glastonbury. -JT

"Life is a do-it-yourself project. You can't hire anyone to do it for you. When you don't have the tools you need, it’s up to you to get them. When you don’t have the skills you need, it’s up to you to learn them. When you encounter obstacles, it’s up to you to overcome them. And when you need help, it’s up to you to ask for it. If you do these things, and if you celebrate both your own skills and the skills of others, then your life will be an authentic part of the world-wide do-it-ourselves project called civilization."
Jonathan Talbot, 2013.

"The creative process is a joyful struggle which yields great satistfaction."
Jonathan Talbot as interviewed by Nita Leland, 2003
