my work by

collage of collages by laura redburn

i can’t remember precisely how these came about. i think i was a bit bored and wanted to make something, but was also too tired to actually do any cutting and pasting. so i found some previous collages that i had saved on my computer, namely: flower power and this top quick collage and a couple of scans that i made into this cutout pattern and kind of just ..collaged them all together. it was quick and fun and i like the idea of ‘recycling’ work i’ve already made into something new.
