I captured this elegant and expressive pose by cutting paper I'd painted in a vibrant coral shade of orange. I love the contrast between the big blocks of bold shapes and the finely cut lines which describe the detail of this pose.
At first glance this collage might look like a painting, but the close-up shot shows some subtleties of the cut paper technique I use: there are rough edges where I've cut the paper with a scalpel, there are variations in colour where I've painted the paper before cutting it, and you can see that the coral figure sits slightly away from the white backing paper....all the qualities I love about collage!
