Life in colour

The medium of collage is one of Amy Jane’s favourite to work in, because it creates narratives and humour in unexpected ways. Removing images from their contexts and placing them on abstract strokes of colour, allows the viewer to engage with them in a playful manner – inspiring their own stories onto these collage-scenes.

“Life in Colour” is a series about ordinary moments in time, shared amongst each other, that become markers of our own nostalgia. We long for a time gone past, or a time ahead of us, that is different from the confusing and difficult present. Escape into your nostalgia (past or future), with a touch of humour and imaginative story telling. Collage allows us to feel silly and return to our childhood selves, enjoying the simplicity and absurdity of the artworks.
