Mixed-media Collage : An Exploration of Contemporary Artists, Methods, and Materials Paperback
Mixed-media collage artists are embracing, unearthing and reconstructing the flotsam and jetsam of modern life with abandon, integrating discards along with a range of art materials and novel techniques to create compelling, new works. Original, idiosyncratic and delightful, this approach to making art is inspiring and can have eye-catching results.
It can also have its own set of technical challenges. "Mixed-Media Collage" takes you into the studios of five talented mixed-media artists: Laurinda Bedingfield, Barbara De Pirro, Paula Grasdal, Sharon McCartney, and Teesha Moore.
The artists reveal their own step-by-step processes, offer tips on working with unconventional materials, and share their insights on creativity and finding inspiration.
A deluxe gallery features forty never-before-published mixed-media pieces, complete with detailed descriptions of the work and the materials used to create them.
