Collage from Canada - Gabriele Maurus


Weissburgunder
I am appreciating the work of Canadian collagist Gabriele Maurus today. She has a series of works displayed online that she has done using the gelatin monoprint technique. I have tried this once, and it was very unpredictable and fascinating. I am enjoying seeing it done along with collage. She also is doing some of these on YUPO< which is not paper, but synthetic and a nice substrate alternative.
The piece Loreleileilei below is a nice example of her work on canvas. The rich texture of the painterly background appeals to me, and the contrast of the type tidbits also makes me happy. There's more to feast the eye on here at her website.
