Spotlight on ~ Virginia Beaubier

“Painting with Paper”

Collage is defined as an artistic composition of materials and objects pasted over a surface. People have been making collages (scrapbooks, photo albums, Valentine cards) since the inventions of paper, but collage has come into its own as an art form in the twentieth century thanks to such artists as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.

My choice of material is mainly magazine paper. Two other artists using this medium whose work that I admire are Derek Gores and Vik Muniz.

The title “Painting with Paper” came about as a result of people mistaking the collages for paintings.
