rockin’ scissors paper.
i love the work of artist jennifer collier. jennifer focuses on creating work from recycled paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching she produces unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects.
jennifer treats paper as if it’s 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 her work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms. jennifer tends to find items, and 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. be sure to visit jennifer’s workshop & gallery space to view more of her incredible projects.
