I LOVE this slightly surreal narrative collage. It is what I do best - telling stories through words and or paper. You bring your own story to the piece.
This collage is made using a variety of papers from the 1800's- marbled paper, prints, illustrations, postcards. I have a vast collection and pieces like this sometimes take months to do while I am looking for the perfect image to complete the piece. There is up to 4 layers of paper and depth in parts of this piece!
The base is a primed and painted wood panel, and is .5 x 4 x 12 ". Edges are painted, and entire piece is varnished with 2-3 coats of a satin water-based varnish to protect it from light/environment. The piece is wired on back, does not need a frame, and is ready for hanging.
