Collage Theme - World Views
In this series of collages, I have tried to capture my emotional response to other lands and cultures. This collage is called Out of Africa. It is very simple in strong earthy colours with a fibre and African bead trim.
I read the book Memoirs of a Geisha and now I am looking forward to seeing the film. I have been fascinated with Asian culture ever since I came to Australia in the 60s, where I was first exposed to it. I have used origami in my art many times, including making folded boxes to give as art gifts. This collage uses amn origami geisha doll, fibres and handmade Japanese papers.
The Emerald Forest was one of my favourite films of all time. This collage started with the image of the Indian `being invisible' in his covering of leaves. I used fibers and corrugated card in the background, with green glass mosaic pieces.
