Caris Jackson.                     Mixed Media Collage Artist

Caris is a mixed media collage artist who combines printed found images with embellished surfaces to create lavish and oddly alluring creatures. I love the serendipity of collage; how a fragment of paper can inspire a whole new existence when removed from its original context and transformed into something entirely new. Often I only have a vague idea of what I wish to create when I start but the working process of
repurposing collected resources leads to a new character gradually emerging.
My current body of work reimagines vintage prints using collaged images sourced from magazines from the fifties to seventies. I am inspired by the kitsch and colourful nostalgia of mid-century advertising, classic stage and screen glamour, fairground signage and iconography.
