In frame total size 30cm (W) x 40cm (H) Collage - vintage french fashion magazines, vintage paper, one-off vintage books

Description

Ready to hang - framed in a 30cm x 40cm black lightweight frame. In a series of four collages -Papillon- is made with recycled vintage fashion magazines , books and paper.

I finished my fine arts degree with a major in painting but embraced a more intimate and personal process with small 3D art works , encompassing needlework and collage and domestic items to rework and pastiche a new meaning.

I adore the process of collage and embrace using and recycling old 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/transitory and impermanent and giving a new life and form.
