Artworks - Annie Seabrook
My work represents fragments of paper, mark making and recycled imagery layered and reinvented.
Rent books, bus tickets, postcards, stamps, deconstructing images and re working items previously overlooked or forgotten. These are reused to create something new whilst preserving the spirit of the old. The composition involves one piece at a time. Itís a journey of exploration through colour, shape, pattern and texture, a joy in the creative process without a specific plan. A visual celebration of the 'old', the 'faded' the 'watermarked' and the 'imperfect', each collage evokes a sense of memory and the passage of time whilst inviting the viewer to find their own narrative.
A magpie by nature, a picker upper of 'treasure' makes collage my ideal medium.
