I am a paper goods freak ... if i see a stationery catalogue i get excited... sad hmmm?
Last night I had a mouth dropping moment, when I discovered Jennifer Collier's work via Pinterest...
I won't rave on too much - her amazingly fabulous work speaks for itself - i LOVE it! Here's a quote from her website...
"My practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing,
trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used
to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects.
The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed
being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles.
The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my
work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms.
I tend to find items then investigate a way in which they can be reused
and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go
unloved or be thrown away."
how wonderful ...
