Artwork Description

Mixed Media on paper, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

This artwork comes with an external frame

Framed and ready to hang, 'Balancing Act' #2 is a fun new work celebrating the 60s retro joy of physical culture or Physie to those that remember it. Hand cut and hand stitched, lushly embroidered with a mass of french knot, roses and collaged on recycled vintage images from the 1960s.

This artwork is 12cm x 16cm and showcased by framing in a 42cm x 32cm x 3cm lightweight sleek, black frame with black, acid free mount and under clear perspex to really make the artwork 'pop'.
The artwork is ready to hang with D rings and nylon hanging cord.

NB: This collage is photographed without being under the perspex to avoid reflections however, subsequently looks even better in person 🙂

I enjoy the intimate and personal process of needlework and collage. Sewing is a loved part of my history.

Collage especially allows a reworking and pastiche to make a new story or 'paint' a new picture. I adore the process and opportunities that collage allows and embrace using and recycling vintage papers and magazines - the ephemeral and the discarded. That which is fleeting/ passing and impermanent and giving new life and form - a new story.


Framed 42cm x 32cm ready to hang frame. Hand cut, cotton stitched, collage on 50 old vintage paper
