This is an incredible abstract paper collage in textured white, tans and black.Multiple layers of fine hand laid paper creating a great 3D composition. Largest sheet measures 14 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. Signed and dated in pencil lower right on that sheet. Collage is floated in archival backing and shadow box frame. A wonderful display of this outstanding work. Frame measures 21 1/2 x 21 1/2 inches. For those not familiar with the artist her biography from her obituary reads: She was the owner and manager of Talma Mill Art Gallery & Studio, located at Enterprise, Christ Church, and in 2004 she received the tribute of a Lifetime Achievement Award Exhibition at the Grand Salle, Central Bank Of Barbados. Heres what Talma said of herself on her website:I love paper. I make paper collages, print linocuts and draw on these paper paintings.
I create paper collages using handmade paper that has been poured, shaped, embedded, coloured, textured, printed and layered, often becoming sculptural. Each edition of the linocuts and the drawings are on paper paintings, making each one different and unique.National Cultural Foundation curator Janice Whittle remembered the innovator. [Norma] was such a lovely person who worked very hard for the development of art in Barbados. She dared to work differently, sharing an original perspective with us. Normas own work was an act of love where she even made her own materials.
As an art teacher, she was influential as a colleague and teacher. Norma was a hard worker who always spoke the truth as she saw it. Those positions were not always popular, but she retained her integrity on the committees and in the organizations she served. Her last comment in the local Press was a call for a national gallery.
