Collage has been described as painting with paper. I love the way materials such as vintage letters, handpainted papers, stamps, maps, photos, book and magazine pages, fabrics, and ephemera add texture and interest to artwork .
TORN PAPER COLLAGES
Using Torn Paper Instead of Paint to Create a Painting
The collages shown above were created using bits of cut and torn paper. The papers come from new and vintage magazines, old dress patterns, stationery, maps, postcards, and vintage personal photos and letters. The original artwork is created on either gallery wrapped canvas, or cradled wood panels and finished with three coats of UV acrylic sealer/varnish. These works are available as prints and can be sized to your needs on paper, canvas, wood, aluminum, or acrylic..
