Melissa Markell: Collage
Melissa Markell is a mixed media artist who has worked with various styles of collage using paints, paper, inks, artefacts, maps, postcards, and paper ephemera of all kinds. She has many different collections of her collage work, however I decided to look at her travel collection. Each image of travel collage includes ephemeral materials that represent a different place of travel; such as Barcelona, Florida, Athens and New York. I like her use of different materials and how it reflects on the themes of the image. I had intended to experiment in the style of Melissa Markell, however using my own ephemeral materials from my places of travel.
