Artist Jennifer Collier creates sculptures of familiar household objects using handmade paper fabrics that she creates through a technique of bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching. It’s a process she refers to as ‘remaking’.
"The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles. The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms. I tend to find items then investigate a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away."
