Gwendolyn Graine

My medium is paper assemblage. I have always loved paper and find it the most versatile, immediate and forgiving medium I know. It also demands proper respect
I use only archival papers and paint each paper I work with using artist’s acrylics before I begin the piece. On most occasions the assemblage begins with just a vague notion of what it might become. The ideas emerge as the work progresses although there are times when I have a very specific notion of what I want to happen and I work from a master sketch. Either way, the most important aspect of my work is that the finished pieice be a thoughtful innovative collaboration of color and design.
