INSPIRATION FOR NEW & FAMILIAR
I was tidying my cupboard and discovered the two collages I made a year ago during art class. My art teacher encouraged me to start making collages. To try out new forms, shapes and different colour schemes. At first I was stubborn of course and I didn’t see the need.
Until I started cutting. I discovered I LOVE cutting coloured paper and who’s worried about ‘need’ when you’re having fun? I might have known though, because I loved cutting paper as a child and always made paper doilies. You know the drill? Fold a paper until you got a small square. Then cut it up, make little holes and tiny shapes, but maintain the integrity of the paper. Fold it open and voila: there is your paper doily!
So before I knew it there was a complete new batch of 16 mixed media collages lying on the floor of my new art studio. Inspired by my love of paper doilies as a child. And that’s why they’re new & familiar at the same time.
SPECS OF NEW & FAMILIAR
These mixed media collages are all A4 size (21 x 29.7 cm). I used black ink, coloured ink, oil pastels and crayon on layers of different kinds of paper (water colour paper, drawing paper, sketch paper).
Creating original artworks to celebrate the world’s most vibrant love stories.
Because a love that lasts is a true work of art.
