Collage: Paper, Paint, Ink on Canvas.
I've always admired the incredibly imaginative etchings from the 16th to 18th century. This is a study from a new series that combines these magical scenes from the past with contemporary imagery.
A framed collage of rice paper on fine Belgian linen canvas, with gold and silver metallic inks and watercolors. The ink is blue and has the feeling of a chinoiserie or delft porcelain. The color painted around the vignette is a lustrous cream color that looks like mother of pearl. The gold and silver inks recall the illuminated manuscripts of the Renaissance.
Thank you for looking.
