Jennifer Collier

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 wouldgo otherwise unloved or be thrown away.

Geweldig, vooral dat babyjurkje en de fotocamera vind ik heel mooi...
Fijne dag,
