IMG_20131119_143700s

I used many layers of a poster I found on the ground in Paris with handmade painted papers and acrylic gel. I sanded in between leaving torn paper and scratches in areas. My interest in this piece is the quality of the surface. During the process I made marks with permanent pens and acrylic paints.  Gluing on torn papers and tearing off with sanding.

Collage Tutorial 9. Materials from Nature

Untitled-1s

I really enjoyed creating the nature collages. I drifted back to the Summers of the ’60’s  when with friends, running fast on the path to the beach ,our feet would burn:) I also remembered organizing the nature table at primary school. My favorite subjects were, art,  nature and social studies. I collected many of the coastal found objects items from Australian beaches and from my own backyard.
