The gallery owner Raffaella is a lovely girl, I am very happy to have been involved into this exhibition. 

Inspired – Lanecia Rouse Tinsley

Today I share with you the incredible collage works by the multidisciplinary artist Lanecia Rouse Tinsley. I love the sense of depth and composition of her pieces, and the layering is always spot on.

This intro on her website sums up perfectly the many talents of this artist:

Lanecia Rouse is a multidisciplinary artist based in Houston, TX. Her portfolio includes a range of abstract painting, photography, teaching, writing, speaking, and curatorial projects for local non-profit organizations.

Lanecia creates work that focuses on liminal space, on the not-yet-formed possibilities and depictions present in materials and their presentation that point towards “otherwise” possibilities and the everyday quests humans undergo to construct meaningful and content lives.

Her work is the product of contemplative and intuitive abstract mixed-media practices and is informed by sociology, theology, culture, poetry, and history.

You can also find her on Instagram.

Seen on The Jealous Curator Newsletter.

Inspired – Katie Jean Gilmour

I am super impressed by the magnetic power of the collages by the American artist Katie Jean Gilmour. I found her on Instagram through her official account, but she also opened one just for her paper experiments.

It looks like these are just a way for her to “maintain focus”, with the purpose to switch them in the future into paintings. I really enjoy the freshness of these works, especially because they suggest me a dark secret of some sort.

I hope to see more of her collage works, they are so inspiring!

Inspired – Kate Cuthbert

Looking at her collages, I was not surprised that the Australian artist Kate Cuthbert has a design background.

Her aesthetic is colourful, minimal and very glamourous. I truly love how she can express herself using a few geometric elements, it’s truly remarkable!

This is how Kate describes her creative process:

I work with primarily paper and love both modern and vintage materials… I cut with both scissors and an X-acto knife depending on the image and the paper quality.

You can also find her on Instagram, Red Bubble and Saatchi Art.

Monthly Collage Kit Subscription Survey

Hi everyone,

I am planning to create a series of collage kits to send over every month with different contents. I will make my selection of vintage paper cuts from magazines and books, while I will also add vintage postcards, photos and other “on topic” vintage finds.

I was wondering if any of you would be interested, and in case which topics would you like to receive. I can also offer you the possibility to pick the kits you want if you are not willing to get a subscription, so anyone can get something. 

I will more likely have preorders set for the first kits, so I can organise the materials and offer you the best I can find. Please click on this. link and check your favourite ones – thanks for your support on this! 

Inspired – K Young

I truly enjoy the surrealist hand cut paper collages by the London based artist K Young. These interventions are incredibly detailed and well crafted, and they recall me the noir cinema in some way.

K Young says: “reimagining existing objects and turning them into something new has been a preoccupation of mine for as long as I can remember, and it is this, together with a long-held passion for photography, which has led me to my working process today. I make hand-cut paper collages from found photographic material. Using editing, reframing, splicing, layering and juxtaposition, I reassemble images until a different narrative emerges. I then make these collages into photographs. By returning the image to some semblance of its original state, I am acknowledging its legacy. To me, the circle is complete”.

Some Of My Works 74

This is the latest series that I am currently working on – is called “Floating Dreamers” and it’s focused on my research on patterns and abstractions.

Floating Dreamers is a series about my constant research on pattern and colour combinations. The title of this body of works is also connected to my fascination for the past, and the necessity to keep it “suspended” in time and space. 

I didn’t have time to post all the pieces that I have done, but you can check what is available in my website below. On my Youtube channel I am also posting the work in progress of these pieces, so you can enjoy the process 🙂
