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 shots 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 figure sits slightly away from the white backing paper. The painted paper has a spontaneous brush mark texture and I have built up the metallic colour in many layers. The artwork comes in a protective clear plastic sleeve. Each artwork is unique and hand made. I make the same designs in a maximum of 5 different colours.
