Shredded art makes vibrant exhibition at Cedar Galleries
TORN paper has never looked so good as Sue Daw's works go on display at Cedar Galleries.
Inspired by the vast number of animals owned by her friend of 33 years, Val Hertzog, Sue's works are created by tearing and collaging paper onto boards as well as paper-mache creations.
"One of the things I love about paper mache is the ideas are endless, and you can recycle just about anything," Ms Daw said.
"I spend many hours creating 3D paper-mache subjects - they can take months to complete."
There will be over 30 pieces of paper-mache critters and torn-paper collage paintings including The Spice Girls, a pink poodle, and The Movie Stars.
This is a show that children will also enjoy and if they would like to try their hand at creating torn-paper images themselves, Cedar Galleries is hosting a demonstration and workshop by Ms Daw tomorrow from 9am-noon.
"I will be teaching a torn-paper painting workshop on May 24," Ms Daw said.
Everyone is invited to come along and see how she creates these collages.
Bookings are to be made with Angela Scheers by calling 0438 588 513 or 4975 0444.
Ms Daw's exhibition, Val's Menagerie: It's all in the name, will be on show from today to June 9 at Cedar Galleries Art and Craft Village.
