Vibrant and richly patterned collages based on real locations by Santa Fe-based artist Charles Greely. The collages are first composed in pencil and cut into miniscule shapes which are used as stencils for tracing and cutting the silkscreened Japanese Mullberry papers. The papers are mainly floral and geometric patterns which sort of assumes the colors, atmosphere and light of the Southwest landscape. Greely stumbled across the material after a trial and error run with other types of paper, including magazine pages. He describes the paper as very durable and almost like fabric resembling woodblock prints.
