Mixed Media Collage. 3 New Works on Paper.

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018

3 New mixed- media collages on 300gsm watercolour paper (Unframed).

I  like to create new visions, by recycling and dissecting vintage papers that I may, or not hand paint with acrylic paints and inks.

Process – On a background of strong 350gsm artist water- colour paper, I add layers of acrylic paints, fragments of vintage papers and random marks, using French ink pens.

MEET THE TENANT BOOK (20% discount)

During the week I was cleaning out my book shelves and came across my book, “Meet the Tenant”. An underground survey of Paris.  It’s an unusual photographic survey of Paris. My photographs in this book are a “non-clichéd” look at Paris. Instead of focusing on the famous monuments, I zoom in on what is beneath the surface, photographing hidden places, including a storage area under an apartment.

I know I’m crazy but, I love spaces underground.

“There’s a life underneath the earth, and people don’t know about it, but it’s very busy and living,” she said.“I have taken photos of the Eiffel Tower but I go under it, and look at closer fragments.”

If you would like to buy a copy of my book…

DESCRIPTION: ” Meet the Tenant” Photography in Paris Australian Artist Jenny Davis. After a venture into the dungeon area under a Paris apartment. I could feel past lives lurking within its damp walls and eerie narrow chambers of numbered red doors. I spent many days down there alone soaking in the atmosphere of the space in order to connect to some sort of creative energy which eventually took off in all directions. I am fascinated by the beauty in the unseen the contained and murky, sometimes thought of as dirty and ugly.
