22 - OP-ART DESIGN & COLLAGE - 01 - DAVE EDWARDS - INK AND COLLAGE - 1995 by 


This is mixed media. I did a design and wasn’t happy with it, so I cut out the bit I was happy with and added a collage background. Before gluing on the collage pieces I crumpled them up tightly and then flattened them out, to create what I see as an interesting texture.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    I love this … what story does it tell?

  • It contains a man deep in thought and a beautiful woman and a perspective drawing. Maybe the man is trying to get things into perspective in his head. He is attracted to the woman, but something is holding him back … you can make up the rest of the story for yourself as this is intended to make people think for themselves.

    This is great, the crumpled textures make me think of fading autumn leaves.

    Very unusual work Dave. Really nice that you found magazine pieces of so many well-matched tonal colours. The crumpled cracked texture is great. Very intricate black & white work too. So very well done. As creative as ever I see. :)
