The Process

Most of my metal collages begin with an iteration first created in paper. The original Visionary was a paper collage created to celebrate this mighty creature. I enjoy the unique challenge of translating a detailed paper collage into a metal version. Like with the original paper collage, the metal version of The Visionary began with a background of vintage papers affixed to a wood panel and lightly white-washed. Then, I created the collage using a variety of hand-cut salvaged metals.

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
