Time Flies or Time Fly's? Either Way I'm Having Fun

The last couple of weeks have flown by and I've squeezed a lot into that time. Thinking up ideas and creating new work, getting ready for the art trail this weekend and cultivating a creative environment which is where I love to be!   


First Up, New Work


I've been tearing up my photographic work to create a layered collage effect! Yes tearing it up! Combing some imagery that hasn't yet been painted on, some monochrome and also coloured photography.


Here's why...


My hand-painted process is done in stages and when I come to print the photography I tend to print a big selection of work and for one reason or another some of my images are never painted on, leaving me with a selection of imagery lying around the studio.


My crafty side well and truly came out during the last couple of weeks and I've been inspired by a couple of artists, one of which -Emily Filler- I've featured below.


Yes it took a few deep breaths before I would tear through my photography (those prints aren't exactly cheap) but once I jumped in I really enjoyed the effect of the teared edges and the exploration of combining different images.


More collage to come for sure!!

The following three artists are my current favourites! I initially found them on Instagram and I love their unique ways of using photography in their work. Very different from my own approach but a huge inspiration for me.
