Carry Out Cafe Hosts Sandra Turner's Torn Paper Art for September and October
By: Carry Out Cafe & Catering
"In the fall of 2018, I tried my hand at collage. I call it painting with paper as I didn't cut out images and lay them out on a background, rather tore swaths of color from magazines and use them much in the same way as you would but a brushstroke on a canvas," Turner explained. "I worked intuitively which resulted in many layers of paper as I was continually adjusting color combinations."
This approach has forced a looser and more intuitive approach to Turner's art. Overlapping colors and shapes has allowed for nuances to take place by leaving just enough of the underlay to achieve a line or curve where needed. "Collage has added a whole new dimension to the way in which I express myself as an artist," she added.
Turner, whose interest in art began as a child, graduated with honors from the New England School of Art in Boston, before enjoying a lengthy career as a graphic designer. She left the corporate world to follow her passion in 2015. Since then, she has been a full-time artist, mastering a mix of media – sketching, watercolors, acrylic and mixed media, clay relief, and collage.
