How’s this for the perfect bit of inspiration for a Friday afternoon, I’ve just come across this amazing work by American artist Lisa Hochstein. I love collage and these pieces are made with salvaged paper which is a practise close to my own heart. Yes, I’m talking about my ever growing tower of magazines I can’t bare to throw out, for inspiration you understand, waiting for my own collage mojo to return.

“For decades I considered myself primarily a painter with a secondary body of work in collage. In recent years this balance has reversed, though I find that my approach to collage is highly influenced by years of painting.”
There’s something quite architectural as well as painterly in these pieces which I find really appealing. All that structure and colour is so satisfying. Something to do with Things Laid Out Neatly, I suspect.
I don’t know how I found this site. You know how it is, one minute I was on twitter and a few hop skips and jumps later and I’m here. Go figure. Yay internet!
