new images / art / figs this week come from Wilma Millette (aka frenchapple) (aka creartfuldodger)
i feel there’s a kind of sweet darkness to a lot of Wilma’s work, if that makes sense
it seems sophisticated and playful but also kind of like a kid who spends the afternoon playing hopscotch then runs inside to watch the shining
or ummm, maybe that’s just me?
aanyways, here’s what Wilma herself has to say ~ ~ ~
I am a collage, mixed media artist from Vancouver Island in Canada. I have been playing with this medium for about 7 years. I strive to create a narrative in my pieces, hoping to give some relevance to the materials I use. I love the ordinary, often discarded and well-worn objects and paper ephemera from the past. They have a certain beauty that is often lacking in the modern world of mass production. I like to think that the people who made them all those years ago would be pleased.
here’s the rest of Wilma’s portfolio 😀
happy wednesday the 23rd june two thousand fifteen you all X
