|Luana Kaufmann's collages begin life as compilations of found images, created with scissors, paper and glue. They are discoveries of believable fantasy and impossibly-grounded dream. Next, they become the "printing plates" for a new generation of "old papers", as they are scanned and meticulously printed to produce (sprayed ink) giclees. The incorporation of the print medium creates the ultimate cohesion of once-disparate parts, as well as renders them to be fine, archival works.
2nd-generation offspring, borne of the collages, have been cloth hangings, shadow boxes, and talismans. Currently, Luana is offering a new, derivative genre of pendant necklaces. And after 7 years, her meditation card deck and journal is complete.
A collage-illustrated fable is still brewing.....
