Vibrant Paper Collages by Alice Lindstrom
Portrait of Aimee with Sebastian the cat
Alice Lindstrom is an Australian visual artist and illustrator specialising in collages and paintings. Her works explore the femininity, the body and the enigmatic qualities of dream and imagination.
Although Alice compositions resemble expressionistic paintings they are actually built using a unique technique. To compose her vibrant collages, Alice assembles and glues in place many pieces of hand painted paper which form the final artwork.
Regarding her inspiration, the artist explains: “My biggest inspirations are 20th-century painters; Ernst Kirchner, Gabriele Münter, and Oskar Kokoschka to name just a few. They used colour freely and achieved a moving expressiveness that I aim for.
I am equally influenced by children’s book illustrators from my childhood like Eric Carle, Maurice Sendak, and Judith Wright.” (source)
