Collage & mixed media
For the past few years, I’ve been experimenting with collage, printing and creating my own papers. The resulting works have an embroidered, tapestry-like texture and appearance. In these new pieces, the canvas becomes a plane of “windows” inviting the viewer into facets of the subject, the nuances of its colours, textures … even its fragrance.In addition, this mixed media method is opening new doors for expressing spiritual and inspirational themes. In Tibetan Prayers, for example, I have used Tibetan prayer flags that have hung for years in our gum tree. The wind, sun and rain have contributed something very special to the final work.
