Mixed Media Works
Mixed media photography, collage work on paper and alternative jewellery
I have always been fascinated with old textures, papers, images, handwriting... everything what evoques a long lost past, belonging to a someone whom I'll never meet with stories I'll never know. Paper in particular has a very poetic and transformative esence. As it ages it changes colour, textour and even scent. I use original old papers every time I can, and I make them part of a story made up in my mind, or maybe born from a dream, nightmare or fantasy. That way, I create a new memory involving the materials, to me, my collage work behaves as the ultimate form of transformation of mediums, into a new life. All materials are my own, collected throught years of visiting flea markets and antique shops.
Recycled Mixed Media jewellery
My jewellery is meant to be seen as wearable art. It is a three dimensional interpretation of the haunting imagery that surrouds my work and my photographic environment.
All pieces are recycled, second hand or self made.
Materials are diverse, mainly vintage photos, paint, text, metal, glass and semi-precious stones.
