Hi I'm Kirstie Adamson, a magazine collage artist based at Banks Mill Studios, Derby
I have always had a great interest in finding ways of using waste materials in my artwork. I turned my attention to waste paper and in 2007 I decided to specialise solely in magazine collage. I don't use any imagery from the magazines but I use the colours and textures that I find as an alternative to paint. It is intentional that when viewing my work that the method used is not instantly obvious. At first glance it is often assumed that I have used paint and only on closer inspection does it become apparent that the piece consists entirely of ripped and cut magazines. The intention is to challenge our perceptions. Highlighting how small changes in our methods and materials can enhance our work while reducing impact.
