Cut paper collage
20” x 30”
Cynthia Frigon uses the vivid colors, patterns, and textures of magazine and calendar pages to substitute for pigment and brush strokes in her collages. Her inspiration comes from personal photos taken at various times and locations. The images she creates with only paper, scissors, and glue can appear hauntingly real from a distance, and only up close can one see the individual pieces—almost non sequiturs—that make up the larger piece. Based on a photograph of the pre-Civil War mill ruins at Sweetwater Creek State Park in Georgia, Antecedent is created entirely of hand-cut pieces of magazine pages.
