Artwork #101


Sarah Presson


Cut paper collage, 2016

The first in this series of explorations concerning the enchanting qualities of water reflecting the world. The blissful bather expresses the joy I feel when I’m in water where soothing physical sensations mix with the fluctuating slivers of the visual world in magical ways! I really enjoyed piecing together the water portion of the piece, as it challenged my sensibilities in selecting collage elements that contained the perfect mix of color, shape, and innate imagery necessary to connote water.
