Collage: Paper, Paint on Paper.
White paper is painted black on the front and orange on the back. Then the paper is teared obliquely in a special way along a straight line. Two strips of paper then arise, the tear lines of each strip of paper being each other's mirror image when one strip is turned around. The two strips are glued together on a sheet of paper.Between the two lines is the back color orange. This is repeated. The tear lines can be deviated from the straight line to return back to the straight line. The appearance of the tear lines is determined by the quality of the paper, the thickness of the paper, the paint types and the technique of tearing,the way they are glued together.
The work is signed at the back.
