Collage "Nyhavn Colour Copenhagen, Denmark," by Jan Spencer. Oil crayon collage on artboard, sealed with archival varnish (signed, d rings and hanger). This collage is inspired by drawings made while cycling from France, through Germany to Denmark for my partner’s 70th birthday. We finished the trip in Copenhagen spending many days exploring this cycle friendly city. These colourful terraces line the river in Nyhavn.
Jan documents her trips in travel diaries, drawing and collaging en plein air and uses these sketches to work up her collages in her Sydney studio.
The collages are made using oil crayons on coloured papers which are torn or scored into shapes, pasted on art board and sealed with varnish. The thick dense crayon plays with the torn edges of the coloured papers.
