Artist's description:

I love the relaxed attitude of this pose. I captured it by cutting paper which I'd painted a shocking shade of pink, and mounting this on a crisp white background. I cut out just enough detail to suggest how the model is sitting, but I like to leave lots for the viewer to work out. My series of cut-out nudes was initially inspired by Matisse's Blue Nudes. I try to emulate some of Matisse's energetic style and apparent simplicity in my work.

At first glance this collage may look like a painting, but on close viewing, the subtleties of the cut paper technique I use are revealed: there are rough edges where I've cut the pink paper with a scalpel, there are slight variations in colour where I've painted the paper before cutting it, and the pink figure sits slightly away from the white backing paper....all the qualities I love about collage!

This piece comes mounted with a 50 x 70 cm white mount and in a protective plastic sleeve.

Each artwork is unique and hand made. I make the same designs in a maximum of 5 different colours. Once these 5 pieces have sold, the edition is over and no more artworks are produced from that design. I never make two of the same design in the same colour.

Materials used:

220gsm paper (painted with acrylics), mounted onto acid-free 220gsm white paper

Ella in Magenta (2013)
