STRATA is a series of three dimensional collages. The base is an embossed monoprint collaged with monoprinted laser cut paper (used as a resist in the monoprinting process), and laser cut bristol paper. The works have a complex and subtle range of light and shadow, produced by the monoprint, ghost prints, collage, light and and actual shadows produced by the three dimensional collage elements.
