About The Artwork

I cut and rip papers and tissues instead of applying paint. Each piece of paper represents a dub of paint. This creates a mosaic of paper pieces of various sizes. Most of the papers come from repurposed high quality magazines. If I cannot find the right colour, I use Japanese papers and tissues and my own painted papers. Because of a variety of thickness, the texture is quite visible. I finish the collage with 2 coats of varnish that creates a hard surface and completely protects the paper from ultraviolet rays and other environmental conditions, like moisture, or hot/cold temperature. I created this collage for the OSA (Ontario Society of Artists) Annual Juried Exhibition. This collage Painting won the Best in Show Award. It was exhibited in John B. Baird Gallery in Toronto. ON Canada. The them for this exhibition was Suspension and Motion. This collage - painting will be exhibited in Artist Project 2017, a second biggest annual art fair in Toronto, ON Canada Feb. 23-26.
