Vershina Bramble, 2017, cutmap collage and ink on paper 24x24"  ($850 + CA sales tax.)


I transformed neglected paper ephemera into intricately

cut, mixed-media pieces with drawing, painting, and collage.

The creative impulse of these ’scissor-drawn’ collages and

rambling ink drawings find their source in a rich

exposure to the woodland landscape and

seasonal cycles of my Tennessee roots.

I spent considerable amounts of time in nature.

We lived near dense woods and were left to our own devices.

My sense of comfort with the outdoors and a trust in the

natural order of plants and animals were an integral

part of my early life and became the subtle fuel

for much of my present creativity.

I use this organic sensibility as a visual tool.

Perhaps also as a curious commentary

about our collective humanity, and our place in the universe.
