Cutting and collaging these metals by hand is much more challenging than with paper and does limit some of the possible detail, as you can see in the botanical accents. But, using metal gives the resulting artwork a fascinating texture, tactile quality and heavier presence in the room. The reflective quality of the metal pulls in light and literally demands attention. Each metal piece of the collage must be affixed to the back with small screws. It’s a grueling but rewarding process.
