Studio Series: 8 Stripe 1

8 Stripe 1 © Karen Thiessen 2013
I'd been mucking about with collage for a few years when I finally made one larger than 2" square that sang. 8 Stripe 1 is an 8 inch square canvas collaged with papers that I have collected or "prepared" with colour copies of my textiles, collages, and drawings. If you look closely you'll see snippets of my Forgiveness #5 quilt. This piece was made and exhibited in 2008 and continues to be among my favourite collages.
