The moon goddess and the sun

The moon goddess and the sun
Mixed media collage.

This obvious tribute to Matisse's cutouts has a complex genesis.

I began making collagraph prints in the style of Matisse's cutouts. The plates were made using scraps and offcuts from various rejected monoprints. I liked the appearance of the plates, so decided to do some actual collage on a larger scale.

In this piece the central yellow panel is an acrylic wash on watercolour paper prepared as the background for a linocut.

Image approx 9" by 8" on Fabriano watercolour paper 15" by 11".

Please note: the brown line on the bottom is an artefact of scanning caused by the paper flexing in the scanner. It isn't on the original.
