Good morning and Happy Sunday!
As a big ‘old stuff’ enthusiast I am always drawn to antique engravings and drawings from bygone days,
especially those of the Royal portrait and the Botanical kind.
But what I love most of all is to cut them all up and re-arrange them in a way so that a new story unfolds. A story often surreal and fantastical, in which strange creatures and hybrid animals inhabit magical universes filled with moons, moths, creeping ivy, wild flowers, birds and beautifully mad Elizabethan dresses.
Not to worry though, I create these collages digitally, so all original images are safe from my scissors!
The finished collage is then printed as a giclée by Alden Fine Print on beautiful textured fine art paper (acid free) and genuine pigment inks.
I release my collages under Morphauna and I wanted to share some of them here on my blog.
Hope you enjoy them
