Inspired by the act and concept of reuse, repurpose and recycle, Gina strives to bring old or discarded things to new light. “For me, collage is about composition, juxtaposition and interpretation. When objects and images are taken out of one context and put in to another it creates engagement, triggering reflection and interest,” says Gina. Sometimes it is found ephemera or hand-printed paper and sometimes it is nature’s own recycled leaves and petals. Gina especially enjoys the tactile aspect of collage, the arrangement and rearrangement of elements that takes her down unexpected paths. She draws inspiration from her family history, travels and sketchbooks.
