  • how to create collage and improve your creativity

    collage can be a great boost to your creativity and introduce so many ways to process an idea. working with paper or two dimensional surface makes your eyes focus in composition or dynamic, but by working as collage, you can overlay, strip, use pattern, fill. Imagine you are in photoshop or illustrator but in real life. One good thing about collage, you can use what you have, recycle paper, upcycle gift paper wrap, cut, extract packaging, you chose your materials without having to buy new ones. About Materials for collage: Paper, all kinds, all sizes plastic wrap, gift wrap, receipts, packaging, it can also be textures, magazines, brochures, newspaper, books, catalog, ad from mail box, no limit Tools for collage: exacto, scalpel, twizzors, scissors, glue stick, smudge lodge,cutting mat, pencil, rulers, compass. creating analog collage, About style? in Collage Art, there are different style, surrealist, figurative, abstract, surface pattern. you can find more sub style by looking the hashtag #collage on Instagram, can also be a starter for your inspiration. In collage Art, you create your own rules and develop your own vision. surrealist art can be so fun and inspiring, it will encourage you to use different scale, create new characters by interchanging their bodies, or placing them in unexpected locations. Rhythm in the composition is game changing. Let's say you have 6 elements: background of a location, very basic, 2 characters, and some smaller elements. By placing them and playing with the different elements, you can create a completely different dynamic in the collage. One composition will have a dramatic tone because characters will be hidden or covered (for example) and One other composition will be funny by creating an illusion with the character becoming a super hero by adding a cape. playing with your different cut outs before giving a definitive shape to your work. take picture or why not film your process to document your work, and also be able to come back to the best composition. how to organize the workspace when you do collage? Lets say it's the first day you do collage, so you have a scalpel, some magazines, paper, maybe some painting and it's all over the place! yes this is also part of the process but what if you need to work on something else, or also you want to make a pause? organisation can help you to create and make a pause when necessary. How ? storage! you can classify the different elements of your collage in envelopes, folders and keep them flat and protect them from wind, sticky hands or family running around. it's always easier to work by serie, create a narrative around the work. It will encourage you to keep some rules and same direction and also help your audience to relate and connect with your universe. Story telling can be from abstract to being very personal; keep in mind that you are the narrator and you can chose what to keep for you and what story to tell. Collage Art is playful! mixing media, textures, patterns, colors, paper weaving, transparency, covering, everything is possible! let's talk about abstract collage, you have difference surface of papers, different colors, sizes, textures, etc you can start by working in a grid and create geometric shapes to compose simple shapes and play a little place them and then paste them. you can also mix with catalog or magazines images and create a great contrast by a solid color block. Again, you can create your own style, and develop your creativity with what materials you have available. We are in a period of our life that we consume a lot of images, digital or analog. the covid situation, being in lockdown, we can create some art made from these images, and invent a new landscape inside, everyday. Now sharing with you a sketchbook project based on collage i started, based on geometry and text based inspiration. After i started to create some geometric collages, mixing color block, playing with papers, drawing and creating layers, I started to see the shapes becoming a 3D shape and started to create new ones as they could become a collage in 3 dimensions. i hope this blog post about analog collage will help you create a new body of work and escape the pandemic pressure; happy to read your creative initiative and talk about art process, comment or write me moritz.jessica@gmail.com #collage #diycollage #artduringcovid #howtodocollage #upcyclepaper #sustainableart #create #boostyourcreativity #createandcultivate

  • women in the arts

    This time of the year has come: women history month. Let's see what metrics tell us about the situation, looking at the different subjects regarding the Art Market in different continents and how women have space to work and succeed-or not. let's have a look on the Art side so we can see many articles and data related to women, it can be to highlight women in history, raise awareness, educate also but mostly to talk about women and hopefully give guidance to "becoming women " or younger generation to have a better perspective. First article i found related to the subject according to research and Seo: Do Women Dealers Represent More Women Artists? written by Kim Hart and Anna Louie Sussman, december 2017 On Artsy, read full article here These metrics will first explain the different issues that we have to take in consideration about the Art Market and the different actors that make the scene more or less active. Some lines from the article that give food for thoughts as they say. Dealers rarely, if ever, cite gender (or ethnicity, or nationality, or any other marker of identity) as a factor in deciding to represent an artist. That notion is almost universally rejected; it’s always and inevitably about “the strength of the work.” after Reading this article from 2017, what did i learn ? The Art market is still managed mainly by white men and the stigma over women potentially becoming mother in their career can have a negative impact in your career. Women Art dealer, women curator, women art advisor, women editor, women gallery owner, women collector, these are the keys to the future of women in the Arts. We need to look at the bigger picture to build a better parity in the Arts. Second Article: Why Is Work by Female Artists Still Valued Less Than Work by Male Artists? written by Taylor Whitten Brown, Mars 2019 On Artsy, read full article here So this article is very interesting because it clearly address the big questions such as parity in the Art field, theories of difference and historical context that we can read the situation with facts and statistics. what to have in mind while reading any article about this subject is that we all have different background, education, and cultural norm that influence us and the market. Ask question around you and you will understand it from your perspective. Chose 5 different people, ask them which Artist made them discover Art, which Artist they enjoy the most? Which artist they would buy? According to their answer you will have a preview of their opinions and postions regarding women in the Arts. This is not a test with good and bad answers. The Art Market is not that simple. According to your education, your cultural background, and influence you will -without being conscious - answer with male artist, or male influenced answer because you don't have the different keys to understand that you can chose differently. About Data and analysis of the Market third article: Methodology: How We Gathered and Analyzed Our Data on Women in the Art world written by Julia Halperin & Charlotte Burns On Artnet, read full Article here this article is very specific about the data involved and what is collected. It leads to other articles that develop and analyze these statistics and allow us to have a better reading of the situation meaning the Us Art market from 2008 to 2018. So let's read between the lines, and see what has improved and what can be done. facts: Just 11 percent of all acquisitions and 14 percent of exhibitions at 26 prominent American museums over the past decade were of work by female artists. According to a joint investigation by artnet News and In Other Words, a total of 260,470 works of art have entered the museums’ permanent collections since 2008. Only 29,247 were by women. Did you ever notice while visiting museum or gallery this gap? 11% is such a small number when you understand the size of the market and the money involved. if you go deeper and talk about women of color in the Arts (Woca) it's even worst. Something to have in mind while looking at all these numbers; sometimes exhibitions are curated and selected according to the curator and museum or gallery decision; But think about the donation, the private collection, and gifts. Having an art collection and sharing it is amazing but the impact on gender equality is like a a silent move. Next time you are in a museum, look at the different actors of the exhibitions: curators, donors, collections, and if the artworks are owned by the museum or private collections, and list the genders, you'll understand fast that it's mainly male dominated. Taking another statistic to look at with different perspective (Courtesy of artnet News and In Other Words at Art Agency, Partners) Yayoi Kusama, born in 1929, Japan Louise bourgeois, born in 1911, France Shinique Smith born in 1971,USA Catherine Opie born in 1961, USA Kara Walker born in 1969, USA Janet Cardiff born in 1957, Canada Rineke Dijkstra born in 1959, Netherland Carrie Mae Weems born in 1953, USA Cecilia Vicuna born in 1948, Chile Diane Arbus born in 1923, USA Isa Genzken born in 1948, Germany Judy Chicago born in 1939, Usa Koo Jeong A born in 1967, South Korea Lorna Simpson born in 1960, Usa Nijdeka Akunylli Crosby born in 1983, Nigeria Pippilotti Rist born in 1962, Switzerland R H Quaytman born in 1961, USa Sharon Lockhart born in 1964, USA Wangechi Mutu born in 1970, Kenya Yoko Ono born in 1933, Japan how to make Art and Activism?

Yes you can, this is the power of acting anonymously and working with allies in the field that create bridges for us and the future that we understand that we are all actors of change and better future for women in the Arts. here's the link to future events of the Guerrilla Girls IRL and online where you can participate, learn and contribute https://www.guerrillagirls.com/calendar To end this article, I wish you have a better understanding of the different actors of the Art Market and see where you can make a difference in your own community with your own perspective. i'll be happy to hear your initiative, point of view and create new bridges for future generations . if you want to answer anonymously or have a private question please contact moritz.jessica@gmail.com #womeninthearts #womenartist #genderequality #womenhistorymonth #womenhistory #womenmakehistory

  • make room for creativity

    Hello! After a year of chaotic schedule and projects, i want to share with you some tools and perspective that I found very useful in my daily practice. First let's start by Space In this difficult times, not everyone has a studio, or space to create physically. your creativity can have some boundaries, it's up to you to limit or expand them. if you can set up a table, or on the floor some protection and start by having some spontaneous and free drawing, writing and let go the overflow of energy and feelings that you might have kept due to circumstances. journaling is also a great option, same as notebooks, but we'll get there later on;) Since we are home, let's be comfortable. Some people would even find it easier to create in Bed, or "live" from the couch, keep in mind that You are the one to unlock these steps and you do it because you want to. State of mind I Have noticed that starting the day with reachable goals improved my productivity and therefore my work. Scheduling the workflow, having hours for defined goals, time for impro, and moments of meditation have given a healthy state of mind in my journey. You can create a week schedule, a bullet journal, a google doc, whatever you feel drawn to and that you know you 'll follow up on daily basis. Create Goals that are reachable, it's always gratifying to finish a week with some accomplishments, there is benefit for your work but mostly for your well being. Self Care should be on the list, and it can be in many ways: Start the day by 10 min meditation, listen to your favorite band, positive affirmations, cooking, dancing, doing a nap. Keep in mind that your well being is the ground of your creativity, so be generous to yourself. Tools No matter what creative field you are into, there is room for all. Nowadays we are lucky to have access to resources, teaching, learning, sharing, online galleries, online exhibitions and keep inspiration update. Digital Art is also a great idea. Some creatives were digital before pandemic and some discovered a new approach of painting, or developing their practice using digital tools: graphic design, digital photography, 3D, Animation, and other digital forms. Journaling, or having a sketch book can also be stimulating. you can always have it with you and takes note, do a fast drawing, or write about your work anywhere, and keep it for yourself. when you start writing about your work, you 'll see slowly coming a new way to keep the inspiration and organize your ideas. Once again, organizing your ideas can be asking yourself, what are you doing, how, why, and where you want to go with this work. these are big questions, but after many years of making Art, and reading about, i really think that these questions are essentials for having a productive and healthy work flow. Sharing As an Artist, It's great to be part of a community, physical or virtual and connect with fellow creatives, inspire and be inspired. you have many ways of sharing your work, and also it's a great way to connect with buyers, curators and other creatives. By sharing you work, you also will learn to take a step back and look at it in other ways. We all have different vision of our work, some of us struggle with the imposter syndrome, some of us are better at social media that making, some us are amazing story tellers, there is room for all of them. If you look on different platforms, let's see what you can get: Instagram: publishing works, works in progress, educate, learn, connect this platform allow you to publish pictures, short videos, IGTV (more than one minute), live stream, stories (small videos that can explain your practice or show your daily life, or support your branding...) you have many opportunities to use to connect with other creatives and also that people can find you and connect with you. using hashtags, explore, places where you feel inspired can also stimulate you and bring new opportunities. TikTok: sharing process, learn, educate, have some fun with your practice too. Aritst is a job, you can still have some humor with it. Pinterest: Collect, curate, create and boards of inspiration, collection of Art or design that you enjoy, Places you want to visit (when traveling will be available ) Club House: Connect with people around the world the tenjoy Art, or are part of the Art community, give tips, listen to others artists and be Inspired! Goals You set your own goals, so let's reset the expected idea of success, accomplishment and results. Make Room for creativity, start every day with good intentions, put yourself in a safe place that you can allow yourself to make the best of it. feel free to share your creative journey and add your way to be creative in a challenging year. comment or contact by mail moritz.jessica@gmail.com #create #artduringcovid #beinspired #feedyourinspiration #keepon #artinlockdown #motto

  • Jessica Moritz ⎜hard edge painting ⎜Mindscape⎜Tel Aviv

    Paintings Hello! the works are organized chronologically, and regularly updated. The last months i have been practicing home due to lockdowns, and focusing on color theories, study of light and sustainable Art. i am proud to present works only made of leftover wood, paper, or found materials. also i have been starting to create digital art that is available on prints and other materials. you can start collecting my work according to your taste and budget. wear a mask, and stay colorful! ​ 2021 Anyway sunrise and sunset what fits in a square fits anywere wall sculpture, 13 pieces acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood hand jigsawed listed work on Saatchi Online ​ i wanted to think this sculpture as illusion of a collage. cut, move and paste shapes as if it was a simple gesture, stay minimal as in my sketchbook. In my process, I create shapes that tends to escape or go out of frame. Many times, i was enjoying the process so much, that I had to find a new way to develop new shapes, so I started to use collage and paper weaving to create unexpected shapes and have a faster idea. Overthinking can shut down a great concept. I had a pile of used paper, some used for past stencils, some found in the street, some from failed paintings. Then I started a notebook, square format, based on a Grid, keeping my reductive choices in a notebook that i can keep in my bag, always. Light Torus wall sculpture, acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood hand jigsawed Listed works on Return on Art ​ new color harmonies, based on light study during second lockdown, Tel Aviv, Israel. Blue like an orange, complementary color harmony, creating ripples of harmony and balance in the torus foundation. ​ Infinite light, based on Pantone of the Year 2021, PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. As a RGB artist, i created grey from colors and developed gradients and ripples with each color. ​ . ​ Hope and other letters wall sculpture, 15 pieces acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood hand jigsawed Listed work on Saatchi Online ​ Hope is such a small word for so many of us. Only four letters to encapsulate future, dream, possibilities, opportunities and mostly Life. Letters have always been to me some friendly signs wherever I was to rely on and understand the location and context. I am so familiar with them that they became part of my landscape, and some escaped and had some mutation in the process. I use 3 different languages in my daily life and process .Sometimes, when I work with typography, I got lost in translation and see them as some abstract symbol. We all sometimes need reminders of meanings behind what we see or do. May this one be a colorful reminder that we have HOPE, today and tomorrow. About colors, wild harmony with cooler tones, green, spring and other hint of what Hope has given me. . ​ what fits in a square fits anywere wall sculpture, 20 pieces acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood hand jigsawed ​ In my process, I create shapes that tends to escape or go out of frame. Many times, i was enjoying the process so much, that I had to find a new way to develop new shapes, so I started to use collage and paper weaving to create unexpected shapes and have a faster idea. Overthinking can shut down a great concept. I had a pile of used paper, some used for past stencils, some found in the street, some from failed paintings. Then I started a notebook, square format, based on a Grid, keeping my reductive choices in a notebook that i can keep in my bag, always. Slowly it became an alphabet, repertoire of abstract typography, mixing textures, accidents, and out cuts. It gave me one more reason to stay in the process, and re-create these fast collage in assemblage, 3D translation of them, and create this illusion in Sculpture. Extending edges to A new path, and again developing colors interactions and surfaces. ​ what goes around comes around wall sculpture acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood hand jigsawed 2021-50x37x2,5(cm) ​ While drawing new mindscape, I was looking if different symmetry and line path, and I got lost, again. The painting direction came out from different interactions, wanted or not. Since we are all together apart and wishing to be closer but at the same time not facing our issues, it came as an irony of the situation. « Closer » is so subjective and overwhelming. 🔁 Still, intentions and actions have ripples and create this circle around the square, meaning energy stuck into a concept. Pick your box, tick on any subject, what goes around comes around, and will make sense to some point, hopefully. Utopia of balanced relations in chaos, as if you were close, or facing your own truth. ​ ​ ​ Sky Escape, geometric utopia​ Work for sale on Saatchi wall sculpture acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood hand jigsawed 50X26 X1,5 (cm) ​ On my journey to escape the current chaos, I always look up. The various mysteries related to sky, space, light and how we see it and what we do with this knowledge. Mission to Mars, or moon explorer still resonate and are an infinite source of inspiration. The paradox of the global situation is ironic and makes it even more fascinating. We are all, more or less, on limited movement and travelling. Creating some utopian landscape generated by these observations makes my journey easier. The escape is determined by the viewer. Observing the Hubble and seeing the Nebula, the stars and the moons is a relief. Isn’t is amazing to have this vision and see the light from here. We need darkness to see the light. I translated this concept into a shape, a new mindscape to add to the collection. Mind the light. ​ Flip the square Work for sale on Saatchi Acrylic and pigments on canvas, 20x20, 2021 ​ ​ ​ Flip the square, new painting with color palette from January 2020 and color theory evolution since. When I started this serie, I had in mind paintings that could be working individually and fit together as a mural, or puzzle. Within process, it became a brain Teaser, and I have decided that all sides should be able to mix and match. Of course some of them would have more acquaintances than others, just like us. We can coexist seamlessly. Maybe a Middle East reflection came into it. About colors and edges, yes another mindscape. The confusion of negative space and borders are necessary to create a shape, that doesn’t mean it’s closed. A little bit obsessed by the blues, casual hustle, if you observe the different proportions of blues and their influence in each flip, you can find a great escape. ​ The moon between us Work for sale on Saatchi Acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, hand jigsaw, mindfully made. As a light artist, I am also concerned by the physical relation of it, and environmental observations. I observe changings, influences, and always look at the moon as a challenge and utopia of exploration of human achievements and dreams. Grass is greener on the other side, sometimes. At the same time, Being away from my family, living in different time zone, I always look at the moon and think that it link us by sight, and in a way make us closer. On a spiritual side, moon is leading many calendars and opportunities that can bring you higher connections and relief. I expanded my colors according to moon light and difference between studio light or different day lights and introduced earth tones, and colored grey to create this connection. I hope it can bring people closer or forget restrictions and boundaries that we are facing now. Torus Collection New Torus collection now available exclusively on Return On Art. ​ Made during Third Lockdown, A collection of wall sculptures based on light observation and color interactions now available for purchase on RoA. Discover Golden Hour Twist work for sale on Saatchi Obsession of light lead me here. On each day variations, each ray of light creates a new moment, intangible and so precious. The oldest and yet best abstract still life that I have ever experienced. From sunrise to dawn, the spectrum of colors are so different and an infinite source of inspiration. This is my new way of creating outside in. it's easier to convey a situation into an exit than a fate. I called my sculpture "mindscape", a way to escape the current chaos. I combine colors and utopic structures to give a new perspectives to the viewer and create a new vision for the world ahead. Wall sculpture, 50x26x1,5 cm, 20x 10,5x0,6’’ /2020. reclaimed wood, hand jigsaw acrylic, pigments and glaze made out of third lockdown, back in Studio in Tel Aviv, israel. Love and other letters, brain teaser work for sale on Saatchi Part of the process is writing, vocalizing and silence. I enjoy composing with letters and signs. I compose more than I write. I try to visualize them before sketching, building shapes, as a collage, overlay, connect and erase. I think this is what remains from last weeks, in other words. During the last lockdown, I felt many kinds of love expressions. It reminded me to express it, to remember to share love with my closed ones and be more opened about my feelings and be more conscious about others. in my practice I try to create from fonts, geometric utopia, and color interactions. In this piece i wanted to combine colors that were out of balance and create a positive surface proportions. I hope it will encourage people to be more expressive toward love. ​ Acrylic and pigments16 pieces of Reclaimed wood, Mdf and other street treasures. Acrylic, pigments and glaze.38x22x 3(cm) Same Same , acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, 27 X 53,5 X 3 ,2021. Work for sale on Saatchi ​ Typography, signs and symbols have always been part of my process, sometimes hidden, sometimes as a singular composition. Some sweet and sour moments turned into a shape. I used the same colors for both parts but change their orders to create new color harmony, every time. That way, you can flip the sculpture anytime you want. this time in terms of colors, i wanted to create new balance with triadic color harmonies and also unexpected ones. Lettering has always been a great inspiration in my work. I wish I was able to resume some facts to feelings in just few letters, and compose only with glyphs and signs. i wish the viewer can find some escape and relief while enjoying the colors. acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, hand jigsawed, mindfully made. Made during Third Lockdown, Tel Aviv, Israel. The why ?~¿, acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, 26x26x3,2021. ​ During the last year, before, between and during lockdown in my studio in Tel Aviv or home, so many questions were shuffling and very few answers. I think it’s common for all creatives having a process that involves questions, balance, arguments, answers and contradictions. So I started some drawings using letters, punctuation, as if the inner dialogue was taking shape. For this one, 23 pieces to fit together, a little mind puzzle, asymmetrical and colorful, there is no light if there is no shadow. And each corner is a new answer. ​ You can identify letters, numbers, punctuation signs gradually taking over my paintings. i believe language and paintings made me develop my own alphabet and form of expression that now can be identified clearly into my last works. New order , full spectrum, acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, hand jigsaw, mindfully made. I wanted to start this year with a torus about light. Light is hope. Light is colors. Light is what makes me do what I do and I hope it gives you relief and inspiration to meditate and create. This pattern got me through 2020, 3 circles interlocking together, exploring different escapes of light.

During the second lockdown, i was more prepared, and did some cutout from my found materials, sketches. i was thinking of impossible geometry, space limits, utopia of reality. I had to balance the current state of mind and create a concrete non sense, a visual that would be a good statement of what was happening. i call them mindscape (mind-escape), using impossible geometry, color theory and fonts variations. Acrylic and pigments on reclaimed MDF, hand cut Second lockdown, Tel Aviv, Israel Earth Spectrum ​ Part of my process is about metrics regarding climate change. I often look up to maps, facts regarding temperature and evolution. Lately, the temperatures went higher and are causing damages today and forever. According to these studies, I develop color palette that represents temperatures, lands, or width of damage or proofs of the climate and nature observation. At the same time, I try to balance the composition to bring some healing and kindness into the painting, for me and for the viewer. I hope that observing this painting can bring awareness to this subject for us. Also, I only use materials found in the streets or leftover to build artwork that also intends to be sustainable. ​ Acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood panel, 60 X120 cm// 23,6X47'' work available on Saatchi Squares reflections coming back at the studio, after second lockdown, going back to basics, square study and color theory. ​ the circles série acrylic and pigments on reclaimed poly wood 15x30 (5,9x11,8”) Tel Aviv, 2020 ​ All of this series was made during second lockdown.

After observing climate changing, nature disasters, fires, and maps evolutions, i realized that as an artist, i can and should make a difference. most of my works are now made according to materials i find, using leftovers, woods, paper cuts, objects. i build new shapes or let their natural shapes and overpaint on it. ​ I applied different studies about colors and climate evolution on it. refering to the climate emergency that we need to face and try to be as sustainable as i can. During the first lockdown, i had to find a way to escape, to let my imagination find some colors that would comfort me in a way and bring from the outside in. so i worked on sketches, impossible geometry, color harmonies and build a new language in my work. I created a utopia to handle reality, crossing lines, color block, gradient, some elements existing in nature that i translated in basic elements in my environment. little by little i also introduce fonts; typography hints of my own language. ​ first lockdown, Tel Aviv, Israel 2020 acrylic and pigments on canvas,20X20 The square study 2020 i build a site specific installation of 46 paintings based on the same color palette. all paintings can combine and work with each other and reveal new sides and color interactions. i wanted to combine colors and try different colors theories, engaging with surface, proportions, geometric and optical illusion. ​ Colors and expectations, i combined primary, secondary, halation and opposite colors but kept proportions tights. i wanted colors to give new values to each other and also reveal new interactions with the viewer.

    About Jessica moritz photo by Myriam Cohenca French-Israeli artist, lives and works in Tel Aviv. Graduated from the fine arts of Paris ( ),LVMH young artist award 2006, TAKASAGO prize 2008. ENSBA She believes that order in chaos leads to an equilibrium of harmony. Moritz’s corpus of art is an infinite voyage. Her calling never discovers a termination. On a diurnal degree, Moritz is compelled to confront herself personally with the transcendence of light. Light is an exceptional commodity for her, it's something which she adores and desires but also causes agony to her. Enduring the torment she creates with her art objects a utopian architecture (mindscape) where she unveils an unfeasible geometry. Her objects are portals to a dissimilar sphere where the mind absconded and is confronted with a clear result of a never materializing entity of art. The inevitable consequence is a painted geometry that provides balance and an optical euphony in a very intelligible manner. Her art is inspired by former Bauhaus artists like . Moritz lives in Tel Aviv, where the traces of this movement are still to be found in the city architecture. Albers inspired Moritz to consider herself profound with the theory of color. Her inquiry led to an inspirational mission to flourish a very own attitude to this optical material. Josef Albers Moritz believes in a sustainable way of producing her art. In consideration of climate change, she reclaims materials to use the existing. She gathers material on her trips and transforms them during a magical process into a new purpose. She tries to avoid a replacement out of senseless consumerism. co-written with J. P.
