Metropolitan, 18" x 15"
Collage in a Vintage Frame.
18" x 15" x 0.5"
"This work developed in the reverse. Inspired by the black and gold vintage frame, I selected the first element for this collage: the gold hexie around the woman's neck, from there other hexie fell into place. Like a puzzle each piece was informed from the previous selection, coming together like a perfect match."
Collecting is a continuous activity in art practice of Canadian artist Mina Vancardo. Magazines, books, handwritten notes, or a tiny scrap of textured paper are often the triggers that initiate and feed her collage work. The cutting process is a deliberate and focused action, while Mina Vancardo does not have the end product visioned at this point, the slow gestures of cutting, selecting and discarding are focused on feeling the line between her mind and her hands. Arranging the cut pieces is experimental; it can be quick and easy or slow and painful, but it is always intuitive.
