My collage (“and the whole world grew a forest for her”) was recently published in Collage Collective Co’s new book, “Green,” which you can purchase here : http://www.collagecollective.co/green
Included beneath the collage is this caption:
“I made this piece for my friend, Megan, who I associate a lot with the colour green. She had a dog named ‘Green’ and she always wore green coloured beads. The title is from an old book of poetry I was browsing through, an ended up writing in a birthday card for her one year. The idea of all these strangers collectively growing a forest for someone was so absurd and beautiful that I had to make a collage about it – a gift of leaves, lichen, and blurs of trees.”
Next week I will be having a small exhibition of recent work made during my residency here in Samoa. If you know of anyone in these parts, please send them over for the opening!
My collage, “May day celebration in Havana, 1961” is included in the Collagistas MAYDAY exhibition currently being held at Tabya in Thessaloniki, Greece. The exhibition runs until June 5th.
This month, I had the opportunity to paint a mural on a bedroom wall inside a wellness home in Blackman’s Bay, Tasmania. I first created a small paper collage sketch, and then painted the entire image on the wall. I had a small time frame of three days, but it was a wonderful experience and I’m hoping to do many more ‘painted collages’ in the future, large and small!
I wanted to share these five paper doll collages I made last year in Alsace. The original illustrations – which i did not draw – are depicting female peasants from varying time periods and townships in eastern France
