paper-made products – jennifer collier

British visual artist Jennifer Collier has remade everyday household objects using decorative materials such as road maps, thread and cardboard.

By bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching, Collier creates unique paper works that resemble antique, vintage and hand-crafted fabrics.

‘The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms,’ says Collier. ‘I tend to find items then investigate a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away.’

The paper is treated as if it cloth, so her stitching is always visible, combining the traditional with the contemporary kitsch.
