Carte Postale

a simple 
post card...

was once a winged thought..
a desire to share an experience..
and a wish that a special someone could share in the joy
of the sight...
the discovery...
the pleasure..

my mixed media collection inspired by antique post cards and 
stamps are textured and layered with acrylic paint, tissue papers
and original antique ephemera, antique french papers are the basis of

Close up of Les Details, Le Jardin D'Hiver,  Italian collage




Le Jardin D' Hiver

Holiday Show 
2015

142 Bis Gallerie
970.484.7862

Artist Statement
Exquisite in it's frozen beauty, Le Jardin D' Hiver...
There is a peace and serenity that settles on the garden in winter, it hovers above the 
understanding of the frozen consciousness, a suspension of communication..
an incubation period ...

that ultimately surrenders to Spring.. 
Capturing that stillness and beauty was my aim in this new collection from my French Paper Series. 


The Process
Each piece in this series features Italian Collage, a time consuming process of pressing layer upon layer of papers and images to create depth and texture. The original images are hand drawn with ink on antique parchment papers and the background text is salvaged from antique French newspapers and books. Each piece is matted and framed in black.

What Lies Beneath

 970.484.7862

Artist Statement
There is always something hidden; just below the surface, on the next page, lurking beyond the layers. If you look closely, you may find a revelation, a larger truth, a symbol or an idea. This new collection was created using a tattered copy of Cassell's Popular Natural History, by Anonymous, printed circa 1880. The simplicity of this series underlines the universal power of anything that
lies
beneath...

Artist Statement
This is a tiny collection that reflects our resilience, our ability to fly even though our wings may be tattered or patched..
Inspired by the people in my life who are still flying, facing death, insurmountable grief, and the total loss of memory.
It was made with antique ephemera, gold leaf, paint and tissue paper transfers..
to send blessings to all in all seasons...

Cat, I just want to tell you what a delightful treat it is to see so much of your work all together! You should be very proud of the beautiful bodies of work you've created; I've been staring at them for quite a while now, and so enjoying every moment and every piece!
