In the need for spontaneity

collage art abstract work

As I'm working on a bigger painting series, I needed some spontaneity.
I'd resisted making collages for quite a while. You see, my paintings appear as collages to many people (especially seen on the photo) and I didn't want to confuse things. Temptation was too strong and I've given in to this playful art-making (yayyy!) 

These are not typical collages, assembled purely from magazine cut outs or photos. The elements are specially created for this mixed media compositions ie. painted or drawn on paper, then cut out and composed against a painted background. After that, they are roughly finished with paints. 

These are also my most affordable original pieces! So, if you still haven't got any originals here's your chance. Each costs only £180 and there are only three of this kind.
