Collage artist Li Newton takes a whimsical journey through time, honoring great artists past and present who have influenced her passion for art.
In each humorous and charming collage, the artist is presented as an animal whose name gives a clue to the identity: Frida Gato will rub elbows with Vincent van Goat, Pigasso and many others.
“There is an intimacy to tearing out paper and watching a portrait or scene come to life as I build up layers,” Newton explains. “I handcraft each work from old magazines, used books and various ephemera collected in my daily life. I am captivated by creating beauty from objects forgotten or in decay.”
