in the style of

I loved the theme this week and the chance to make a tag
in the style of one of my most favourite mixed media collage artists
so here is my effort ... in the style of Kurt Schwitters


I studied his mixed media work and assemblages for textiles at uni in 2004
and I was very fortunate to see the retrospective show of Kurt Schwitter's work
at Tate Britain in London in February 2013


lovely work everyone ...
thank you to Carolyn H for this wonderful choice of theme
and to all of you for your kind comments on previous tags
I haven't finished my tag for "text" yet ... I will add it later
best wishes, Carolyn S

  11. I had to google this artist, as I was unfamiliar with his work. I can see why you like him so much. You totally cracked it with your tag, it is very much in his style.
