Up & Upcoming This Month
STOLEN & ESCAPED GALLERY UP: Collages by Daisy Blake.|0| In 2007 Blake was involved in the 337 Project, for which she created a large abstract collage using hand made paper. Blake's current work continues the process developed for her abstract collages using hand-made paper that appeared in the 337 Project, but on a smaller scale. “I wanted to work really small, but use the same abstract collage techniques. I love the texture of paper, the way the colors change when they are layered, some becoming quite translucent. I would describe the work in this show as abstract studies focusing on color inspired by: antique weaving and textiles; local geography and landscape; incidental marks and worn surfaces.” Through August 13.
