FINE ART COLLAGE BY ATLANTA GEORGIA ARTIST, LAURA W. ADAMS
These scenic landscapes depict the forests, mountains, wildlife and wildflowers of the world. I often concentrate my subject matter on the beautiful rain forest region of Western North Carolina, near the areas called Big Ridge and Slatten Creek. I also find inspiration in the natural places around my home in Georgia, and on places where I have recently traveled. My recent work has evolved into displaying wildflowers, wildlife and forest scenes in an idealized, and often allegorical, environment.
The source material I use for these collages include found items from nature, textured papers, painted papers and exotic patterned papers that have been cut up, layered, and adhered with acrylic medium. Often, ten or more layers of material are used to create a single work. The result is a “painting” with a distinct, three-dimensional effect.
