Victoria Foster Harrison

Banded Together by Victoria Foster HarrisonAn Encaustic Printmaker, Victoria embraces the Japanese wabi-sabi theory (or “perfectly imperfect”) in her abstracted collages and landscapes. The natural by-product of wrinkles, spots and blobs by working with melted wax are welcomed elements in her work, along with line, pattern and texture. A right brain – left brain thinker, her work is a combination of active detail along with calm atmospheric fields. Her collage work may include encaustic prints, calligraphic strokes & mark-making, paper ephemera, book spines and her own abstract photographs. Visit her website.

Pamela Beer

Pamela BeerWhile not classified as a collage artist, Pam's work may contain elements of collage because anything goes when the creative process begins. Pam creates her own patterns, stamps, and colored papers for application during the process as needed.
Representational or whimsical work begins with pattern and shapes that feel good. At times, a vague notion for the theme of the work is present when working in series. Inspiration may not only be color and pattern; but ideation, personality, and feelings.
Most abstract work develops through a process of layering and textures, structure and looseness, lights and darks, and often a subtracting of layers until the visual dialog becomes stronger and the story solidifies.
