Out at the Edge
About this artwork
Artist Margriet Hogue's process involves layering handmade papers and acrylic paint, which she then sands and scrapes giving the work a rich aged surface. In this artwork, painted pieces of linen fabric were added as well as collaged metal items. The surface was then drawn onto with ink and finally, the piece was varnished and a coat of cold wax was applied at the end. This piece reminds me of the farmland around my home and the lines in the fields made at harvest time, says Margriet.
