French Mixed – Media Collage. La Chaise Asnieres Series

“La Chaise Asnieres Series”
Original French mixed – media art collage. I created the collages from hand- pulled screen prints of my original sketches, vintage wallpaper layers with vintage doily scrap, acrylic paints and decorative stitching with cotton threads on 180 gsm watercolour paper. Backed with vintage wallpapers.

Missing Paris and my Daughter Amy.

Today I’m missing Paris, my second home.

I felt the first cool breeze of the coming winter in Melbourne today and it reminded me of my Winter in Paris last year.

I miss… the sharp icy wind hitting me in the face as I walk around the corner on my way to the market or Metro.

I miss… warm afternoons in the apartment listening to French tv with amazing foods, especially real baguettes and Frazier-res from the Patisserie across the road

I miss…being under the Eiffel, small cars and the little carnival nearby

I miss… the art , the artists, Surrealists, Dada….

I miss… collecting street litter with David ,street art, photographing underground spaces, junk collecting and Mont Martre

I miss… big woolly coats, scarves and boots when slipping in the snow and Champs Elysees.

I miss… creating in my little studio in the corner of the lounge/bedroom I call the “Cubicle” in Paris and the view out my window.

I miss…. visiting family and friends and living with passionate French people and locals and the colours, the smells of my neighborhood .

I miss Paris but, I will be back again and again because… most of all ,I miss my beautiful daughter Amy who lives there.
