People Doing Things

These ATC’s, made in June, 2016, depict cut-out people with accessories provided by me.

    Do you just glue paper in the shape/ picture you want? These are so intriguing and simple, not overly busy, I love your artwork! 🙂

    I make a background, and then I cut out the figures from paper, then paint them. Usually I make a big collection. And then I see which figure fits into which background, and if I want to, I add more elements or paint. That’s it!

    You really put the ‘mixed’ in mixed media, Claudia. Love the collaged backgrounds, the brilliant use of color to pop these ‘friends’ and drawn thingies in their possession. So very interesting!

    I totally love this collection. I really enjoy the way the different materials used in each layer or element make the accessory so emphatic. It led me to ponder in each little vignette whether the object was taking over the person rather than the person controlling the object.

    I have lots of little drawings like this and plan to use them in more scenes and see what directions they take what might otherwise just be a …picture.

    The more the merrier, sometimes, I think, as far as trying different things all in one composition. (Or else a big mess, but how will I know unless…)
