More from the plastic and print series: colourful plastic sheets are placed over the fashion pages of an old magazine. The fifties dresses and elegant poses of the models conjure up images from fairytales; indeed the ‘Disney Princess’ came into the cultural sphere during this era.
I’ve taken a series of photographs using coloured plastic sheets and old magazines. The result is collage-like compositions which feature geometric shapes, interesting textures and vivid colours. I’ve divided the photographs into different themes based on their content: features, fairy tale, consumer culture, beauty and advertising. Here is the Features series.
A nature-themed collage which I made from pages of my German book ‘European Plants and Animals’ and from a camping advert from an old French magazine. No need for more words, just visual indulgence.
The concept of the sublime is when something (often in nature) is so great that it is overwhelming and it becomes almost impossible to believe it. For example, high mountain ranges, vast expanses of oceans and deep valleys. For me, the sublime is nature at its most impressive and powerful.
La Nature Jaune represents a combination of glamour and nature. The woman is carefree, wearing a signature 1960s expression of happiness. I found this image in a catalogue for knitting patterns. It was called Stitchcraft so I stitched all over it.
