VIEW IN MY ROOM
This mixed media collage is made with various magazines and newspapers from 2017. The image of an owl was inspired by articles, the bird looks a bit sceptical and deadpan - can you guess what is it thinking about? There are lots of seemingly random words and quotes which make its feathers, and everyone will notice certain words first - try to read the owl and see which associations those words bring up! The artwork features various magazines and newspapers, acrylic paint, pen, and marker on handmade acid free paper from South India (made from recycled cotton rag).

I am Elena Howard, a London-based mixed media visual artist. I create collages, drawing inspiration (and materials!) from whatever I am reading at the moment. It is a highly intuitive and spontaneous process where I experiment with selecting fragments (words and colours) that I am drawn to, and then combining these with drawn and painted elements, on a prepared surface, to create little poems, shapes, scenes and creatures which reflect themes and topics covered by the source publication(s). I discovered that viewers are drawn to different sets of words which trigger different associations for each person. My collages combine my fascination with the written word and a passion for bold colours. Merging these is my way of transforming the original information and the emotions it triggers into a visual form.
