newspaper collage



I have just started fooling around with creating images in newspaper and then painting over them. I've used newspaper for background material in collage, but not as central image. A lot of collage artists make extensive use of newspaper; I don't know why I've never explored this before. Comments and suggestions are most welcome!

  1. This is really interesting. I've followed your work over the years, and this is a rich new direction. Can't wait to see more!

  2. jane, do you paint all the newspaper pieces at one time, then cut and prepare composition?
    Do you stiffen the newspaper at all?
    thanks maria.

  3. I love the look of these, but i wonder about permanence? I don't like the idea of selling something that will deteriorate with age... how does your work age? Will covering it with an acrylic medium help at all?
