Description

Mixed Media on paper

Signed on the back

This artwork comes with an external frame

42cm x 52cm total in Frame and ready to hang. This is a series of three different collages - Chrysanthemum sold individually and made with recycled original vintage papers. This series of artworks are framed in a 42 x 52cm lightweight black frame.

Although I finished my fine arts bachelors degree with a painting major , I embraced a more intimate and personal process which I find with collage, mixed media encompassing at times needlework and collage and small reworked domestic items.

Collage especially allows this 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 - currently vintage French fashion magazines and discarded books from the 1950's and 60's - the ephemeral and the discarded. That which is fleeting/ passing and impermanent and giving new life and form - a new story.
