Working in a series is something relatively new for me. It makes so much sense to work on multiple pieces with a common thread woven through for a cohesive body of work. I don’t do this all the time but I’m trying to keep this in mind as my brain circles around an idea.
I took some photographs of some vintage household items as still life works. I loved how the pieces were functional and beautiful at the same time. They were worn smooth or slightly tattered but they served a purpose and lasted many years.
I decided to combine my photos with paper collage to create a series focusing on the functionality and beauty of these old household objects. I also created some hand painted collage papers, with a bit of a contemporary feeling, in a neutral color palette. The old and new seemed to work well together.
Give it a try if you haven’t already! Let me know what you think…
