FROM KOLAJ #24
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
A big part of the collage work is the hunting and gathering. For Ross, part of the joy of collage comes from the hunt. She puts these fragments to work in delicate compositions. A portfolio of collage by Amy Ross appears in Kolaj #24. “The antennae of butterflies become sprigs of blooming clover. Dragonfly tails shoot out buds. What magical science is at play here?”
