We have been very lucky to have the opportunity to team up yet again with Anne Warren, a local Melbourne artist who helped this year's NCAT Create students push conceptual ideas through collage. Anne is a highly skilled Dada inspired Collage artist with an extraordinary ability to cut the finest of details with a tiny pair of embroidery scissors!
"From a photo I have taken or from a found image in a book, I respond to the visual images that are around me. I will juxtapose an image or part of into a new environment to allow the viewer to interpret as they wish".
Anne has a Diploma in Visual Art as well as a Bachelor in Fine Art (Drawing) from RMIT University (2009). She is currently exhibiting, is an active member of Alphington Open Studios, the Out of the Box group of artists and is teaching mixed media, digital, collage, assemblage, drawing workshops from her studio.
Anne worked with our students to create small collages on water-coloured backgrounds which were all about placement and finding the right image. The workshop coincided with a copyright unit and as a result, the students sourced their images from appropriate copyright free books and magazines, found in op shops and dusty bookshelves!
