Conny Goelz Schmitt,
vintage book paper collage,
13 x 16 inches,
In my work I deconstruct discarded vintage books, on the hunt for textured surfaces and faded colors. By means of Décollage the element of chance becomes an integral part of my process.
The interplay of sizes, shapes and color leads me on a search for their perfect placement.Through considered alteration and arrangement of my salvaged and manipulated materials I create geometric collages and assemblages.
This pursuit for balance and harmony becomes a meditation, triggering memories and leading to new interpretations of past and present.
