Paint on paper abstract collage
When we first went into lockdown back in March 2020, I decided to take the leap and explore a long held desire to make abstract paintings. The time seemed right, so I signed up to a workshop and have been experimenting and developing ever since then.
For this series, I wanted to explore the juxtaposition between solidity and translucency, delicacy and strength, using papers as glaze to alter the opacity.
I always begin with play, making marks and shapes using paint, crayon and pencil, then I become much more analytical, adding papers to create structure and build the space.
I hope you like them!
