Suzy Scarborough
'Wonders of Knowledge' Mixed Media Collage Painting

2017

Price Upon Request

About

Suzy Scarborugh begins each piece by creating a collage background of book pages from late nineteenth and early twentieth century books. She chooses these books for their beautiful intricate engravings, drawings and the golden brown paper. Scarborough also uses more modern sources including: botanical drawings, mechanical drawings, maps, mathematical/geometric drawings, architectural drawings, medical/anatomical illustrations, non english texts, illustrations of ancient cave drawings and other archaeological sites, etc. Over the collage Scarborough paints with acrylic paint, oil sticks, and sometimes water color. She allows the painting to develop organically, allowing the paint to drip and puddle. The pieces have an encaustic finish which gives each piece a misty luminous quality.
