COLLAGES

scissors are my paintbrush

My analogue collages contain dozens of cut out pieces, each meticulously hand-scissored after being chosen for their content, and also importantly, for their scale. Collectively, these layers are combined to form a new reality, and it’s this technique that’s applied for each original work.

 

While my resource library is vast, specific decades from 1950s-70s are usually a starting point for subject matter, and give my works a retro-futuristic vibe – especially in the modernist architecture of the era.

 

In developing my collage style, I set my own rules early on, whereby I would camouflage any noticeable blunt edges or cuts, in order to make a work that is as seamless as possible. This may mean covering an imperfection, or, for example, extending a subject matter if only part was usable from its original source. This problem solving is an integral part of my process when conceptualising these new visual narratives.

 

 

New developments

For new large scale works, I have been custom-printing oversized images, creating seamless backgrounds. This development has been a major step for enhancing the scale without restriction.

 

I love to draw people in with my collages, so that they may discover the small surreal details after repeated views. These minute details, added with the context of the picture, tend to play with one’s consciousness. And hopefully yours!
