Precious Cargo

Morgana Wallace (previously) began making cut paper collages after her interest was sparked during a monotype session in printmaking class. Wallace was most attracted to the texture of cut paper compositions, especially with unique materials like wallpaper samples. Currently her work revolves around female heroines and mystical beasts, adding detail to her characters with banners and leaves that float around the subjects’ heads and torsos.

Wallace often uses Japanese linen paper in her work because of her attraction to its texture, mixing it with Canson thin card stock to create her characters’ flowing hair. Other materials used in her works include X-ACTO knives, water colors, gouache, and pencil crayons. To create depth and shadows she also uses foam board which adds to the painterly quality of her scenes.

Wallace is represented by Madrona Gallery in Victoria, British Columbia. You can see more cut paper collages on the gallery’s artist page here.
