Woman with Beads
Collage of a Maasai woman with her colouful beads, each one individually punched from recycled paper. Maasai women set aside time every day to work on their beautiful beaded jewellery. I started this year with a goal to create something every day and have slowly been adding to this work for most of the year with punched paper circles for beads made from paper recycled from my studio. The face is a digital collage made from images of security envelope lining printed onto 100% post consumer recycled paper.
Work was highly commended at Brisbane's Artworld Studio Portrait Prize 2017.
