Queen Esther collage (in progress)

It’s a long process using hole punched paper to create a stain glass window! This large scale collage, based on collected sketches, is a great way for me to explore collage on a larger scale.

Initially the collage was to be a painting, but the first few bits of paper crept into the canvas no it developed from there.

Getting my three wonderful models in the same place has been part of the challenge. Further exacerbated by them now being based in three different countries.

The charm of the collage medium is that it allows a reinterpretation of the light. I’ve also been able to go to town on the fantasy aspects of the piece, turning the original setting of temple church into a Persian palace.
