Artwork: "German Course, Whack!" Series

22.3.17

I made this series of collages right before my exhibition in October. They all incorporate figures, palette scraps, map, and bits of my other paintings. They are a 4 part series. 3 of them are still available for sale in my art shop.



They tell mini stories in themselves. The pieces were a challenge to me as an artist to let go of a little bit of control and make works that are made of preexisting materials and to let the individual parts of the collage choose one another.

Each collage has a figure which seems very much in control and out of control at the same time.

I love making collage. Especially using bits of old books and practice paintings of mine. It's fun to mix different preexisting sources together to make something new. And tell a little story.

Thanks for reading lovelies,
