Inspired – Amela Cikota

Inspired!

Enjoy the beautiful analogue paper layered collages by the American artist and art teacher Amela Cikota. This series, called Codes, is about abstract composition pieces made of plenty of different papers.

This is how the artist describes her work:

These collages are the newest addition to my work. The collages are created by layering a variety of paper including tracing paper, vellum, Japanese paper, painted paper, Thai paper, Nepalese paper, and pages from antique German books. The base of each work is part of a antique music reel which create the lines and dots in the collages. This connection to music brings a code like visual to the collages. I look at these lines and dots as a code, or more of an early technology and coding that came way before computers. These codes encrypted in the antique paper creates a relationship between the past and today’s world.
