Backstories

This ongoing series of collages began during lockdown as a way of connecting to something intimate and tactile. Many begin with a found book and use the cover as a starting point. The process is about finding different ways to build an image. They develop from different aspects - maybe the colour, title or format is important, or a particular crease or sign of wear, things are moved until they fit and feel inevitable. They are are somewhere between an object and an image - maybe blueprints for future things to be made. Collages are available via Hoof and Claw Studio and more can be seen on Instagram @HoofandClawStudio
