About Emi Noris
Artist/designer based in Skopje, Macedonia Driving forces in life:art,fashion & music. "My collage artwork reflects my personal everlasting fascination on the subject of woman and fashion. I started using this technique in 1997 by doing collage interpretations and reproductions of paintings from various artists. It was an experimental phase during which I learnt the basics of the technique. But it was fashion design school I finished in 2002, that guided me to and formed my present style. During this year I learnt a lot about visual expression of ideas through making of fashion books by using collage technique. This was the moment when I begun my "Woman" phase, that it's still going on. The works of "Woman" phase are focused on expressing different woman characters, moods and feelings. I build every work around a specific woman figure or face. The most important part of the creation process is to choose this central figure or face, because it drives the rest of the composition. During the whole creation process I rely primarily on my instincts and momentary feelings, and act completely spontaneously, rather than having specific predefined final goal.For my works I use cuttings from different kinds of paper. Then I apply pastel, acrylic or textile colors, and sometimes add textile or other objects. Most of my works are done in 50 x 70 cm format."
