COLLAGE & PRINT

It’s been really enjoyable working in collage recently, I love it’s immediacy. 
There’s a structure to printing that collage just doesn’t have. Collage has been a bit of an effortless, or rather a more intuitive process. I like feeling my way around a space, using fragments and leftovers to build something new. Each collage is about balance of colour and the interactions of the shapes within the rectangle. Re-ordering pieces becomes the subject itself.
It’s a new way of working for me; a kind of thinking on top of words, working over the pages of books at the end of their lives. Something more spontaneous and recycled.

‘Sticks and Stones’, my first print of the new year. ’52 x 40cm, silkscreen print on Fabriano, edition size 30.
