Backstories

Many of these collages begin with a found book and use the cloth cover as a starting point. They develop from different aspects - maybe the colour or title is significant, or a particular crease or stain becomes the place where something originates. Paper offcuts are moved around until they ‘fit’ and seem inevitable - something between an object and an image - perhaps designs for things yet to be built.

Collages available via Hoof and Claw Studio
