in my mind before she spoke

I'm often exploring collage using pages from old books..... and recently I have been working on larger scale collages combining gouache sketch-painting and with drawings including monoprint drawings.

This collage combines yellowed pages and fragments of paper from old books. I have also used brown paper and a small piece of gold-coloured paper.

All creases, torn edges, smudges etc... are intentional.

I am interested in the fragility of memory and story, and how things change over time... The bold black painting 'acts out' stories and at the same time 'acts' as a contrast to the subtle papers....

The papers have been patchworked together using an appropriate glue.

There are bold sketches and tiny monoprint drawings combined in this work.

Inspired by my own sketchbooks, love of art history and folk art.

In many ways this work is like owning one of my own sketchbooks, pieced so that you can see many ideas at once.... I have made use of text to create a layer of meanings and ideas....

A striking original work for you to frame and hang. Comes unframed.

This work measures approx: 35cm x 23cm - slightly irregular due to the nature of the work.

I will package carefully, sending to you flat between boards and wrapped with cellophane.

This item will be sent via an insured service

Many thanks!
