Art Review

working, so often if the story is good it will keep me at it longer.€€If I organize pieces well as I am cutting them makes an easier and faster in the creation I do not have to search as long for a piece.€I will organize by colour, content and shape.€A big part of my preparation is experiencing the inspiration. Which can be many things, meditation, taking a bike ride in nature, a walk though the city, a visit to the€museum, music, spending time with a muse.€€Or often its TV or movie,especially€for the€comic book€ones i would watch the movie about the superhero.€For the ultramarine show “Reef life” piece i watched a lot€of€documentaries€about coral reefs,€it was pretty great and I learned interesting things about fish. €

Now let's focus on your artistic production: I would start from your€Fashion Magazine Collages series€that our readers have already started to get to know in the introductory pages of this article: and I would suggest to our readers to visit yur website directly at€http://www.melissamoffat.com€in order to get a wider idea of your artistic production... In the meanwhile, would you like to tell us something about the€genesis€of this interesting project? What was your initial inspiration? € The magazines themselves were the genesis.€€They were filled with colour, patterns,€and shapes.€They were just sitting there in a pile, wanting to be made into something new.€I enjoyed the process the ripping out of the pages and the cutting was therapeutic.€During creating It was mediative the pieces would just fit like a puzzle. In some collages they were made with just one issue so it was the challenge, of trying to create with limited supplies. detail from myFunerals, Performance
