I love watching process videos. I find they offer that little extra insight into the creation of a work of art and every artist is different – not only in what they create but in how they move their hands. I’ve recently have started posting little videos of my own hands at work on my Instagram account: @sydneyroseart.
I’m often asked how I create my collage work and how I manage to cut such tiny images out. These videos provide much more information about the process than photographs and finished pieces ever could. They show the tools, the thickness of the paper, the scale of the images, the decision making that goes into choosing where and what to cut next. For me, it is really interesting to remove myself from the immersive and meditative process of collage and see how my hands work as an outsider. These are a few videos that I have posted and I will continue to post more. I hope you enjoy!
