Shop. Collages. Free shipping.

The elements of the collages come from years of collected books and prints of plant representations in photography and painting. The elements are cut out and reassembled and glued in a lengthy process. Among the cut-out papers are dried real flowers, drawings by the artist, old stamps, scraps, wax seals.

 

This work can be seen as a counter-pool to the activity as graphic designer. In graphic design, everything is digital and disappears when you quit the computer program. The design is subject to constant correction and must be editable at all times. The collages, on the other hand, are painstakingly handmade. They arise without planning and are irreversible. Once glued, the motifs are no longer changeable. The very clean cut and the artistic composition to a new arrangement, is very time consuming.
