“My art is about paper. How it feels, how it tears, how it absorbs or reflects light,” Louise Forbush has said about her work. A San Francisco Bay Area artist, Forbush is known for her handmade paper collages decorated with fabric pieces, gold leaf, and calligraphy. Forbush’s love for paper developed while she was studying ikebana— a Japanese flower arrangement technique. Forbush applied her ikebana techniques of color balance and texture to create her art. The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art’s upcoming exhibition and benefit auction highlights Warm Light, a Kochi paper collage by Forbush. Mostly mistaken for paintings, Forbush’s art is noted for its fluid nature and intricate details.
The event also features an altered book titled Life in the Woods by Stephanie Thwaites. Made using elements of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, the panoramic piece captures the beauty of Walden Pond through the hand-painted pages of the book. Also offered is a collage made of generic items such as envelopes by Julia Ross and an altered book with African fabric by Lisa Rodondi.
