Fall collage

Night garden collage painting - Halifax artist Genevieve Kelly

As the fall turns to winter the days become darker and so does my artwork. This collage is inspired by the transition of seasons and the moment between day and night.

I have been using a lot of metallic paints and spray paints in my artwork. I like the common place, found, humble materials mixed with gold leaf. Most of all, I like the arbitrary drip, the happy accident and fortuitous misstep. This piece has got it.

Leaves, decay, vegetation. Flowers are associated with beauty and celebration but also mourning. For me, that is why natural elements have such rich expressive possibilities.
