You Would Build a Mansion, I Would Weave a Bower

Monotype Print

Created by Ouida Touchon
One of a new series of songbird and butterfly originals that the artist calls "chine colle collages." It's a fun and spontaneous medium which involves the traditional chine colle technique and numerous art paper fragments, which include hand-printed paper, vintage print fragments, and the artist's own handprints, re-purposed into new compositions. The fragments are assembled with nori paste and run through a printing press to adhere to a back-sheet of heavy archival paper. Gouache embellishments.

Includes an acid-free, off-white mat and backed with archival board. Titled and signed by the artist. Packed carefully in a cello sleeve, and shipped to you in a cardboard box.
