Sliver of Landscape

by Jo Reimer
Outback Red - sold
12" x 30"
collage on paper

I'm still working on the "Piecings" series (need a better name!). I started doodling in the margins of Sunday morning sermon note paper, drawing skinny rectangles and imaging them as slivers of landscape as seen through narrow windows or the arrow slots in medieval castle battlements, with the view divided into sky, forests or crops, and the land below.

I continued drawing these compositions, eventually thinking of them as collages, pieced together from paper and maybe even fabric.

This is the first Sliver. I have another sliver on my easel and am chomping at the bit to get back to work.

    1. Thanks, Bren, one of the things I like most about collage is the ability to combine papers to come up with something simple and yet complex.
