Seward Artist Susan Kolstad at Winter Frolic

From the Artist:
For the past several years I have been producing collages from tissue and other papers layered with acrylic. I often include paint, inks or other medium applied with a brush. When I think of my collage work in general, I think landscape. They often include a reference to climate change or an event from the news.

Usually the picture begins without an end I mind and grows as I work. I often work to music with a strong rhythm and it happens that my brush stroke when applying the acrylic is timed to the music. Recently I have begun working on small geometric drawings as well as drawings that combine many people rendered in a cartoonish method on the page.

You can find Susan’s work at Ivy Building # 228 during the Winter Frolic on Saturday, Dec. 1 and Sun. Dec. 2.
