Bric a brac – Collage

Bric a brac – Collage

This collage was started at a workshop and the arrangement up of the various items was on boxes, covered with fabric.  The colours were rich and the textures of the fabrics and the odd collection of items were very attractive.  This set up impacted on my original sketches with some strong geometric shapes emerging.  I took photographs and made sketches so that this could be completed in the studio.  It was great fun – I did reposition items (and make a few up).  It seems rather like a junk shop window with mysterious spaces in the background.
