A little collage created from a vintage Australian recipe books and pieces of hand painted papers, wooden ice cream stick painted and washi tape.
As a child I can remember going on long trips to Melbourne by train . For lunch we would go to Coles cafeteria for a delicious ice cream sundae with fruit, jelly and lashings of chocolate or strawberry syrup. Topped off with nuts, cream and fruit.
I used many layers of a poster I found on the ground in Paris with handmade painted papers and acrylic gel. I sanded in between leaving torn paper and scratches in areas. My interest in this piece is the quality of the surface. During the process I made marks with permanent pens and acrylic paints. Gluing on torn papers and tearing off with sanding.
When I travel I love to photograph graffiti and other interesting walls and doorways . Europe has some amazing street art, while, my hometown in Melbourne, Australia, is known as one of the world’s great street art capitals for it’s street art and graffiti. Street Art Melbourne
This challenge has been more liberating in more ways than one. Only using glue, scissors and magazine cut outs, I created a series of collages in ’60s style and finally got the chance to use some of my vintage magazines for art.
