More work completed from the Matisse Workshop!
Su Bonfanti began her exploration of Matisse’s work with an intensive study; by copying his seriographs but translating them using coloured tissue. Not for the fainthearted!
As she progressed and assimilated his concepts she was able to apply the ideas and style of figure-study to a completely new design. In addition, the tissue paper created transparencies which give added depth to the composition. These pieces are small – about A4 in size – so you can imagine the amount of craftsmanship that went into working with delicate tissue in cutting and glueing. Brilliant!
