Christa Diepenbrock, MFA
Inverted Space is a collection of recent figurative collages.
The small personal hand-made collage studies explore the complex
spaces that female figures create in a limited space. Innovative spaces
are created as figures are placed over, next to, and towards each other.
BLUELINES - 24" X 36"
Negative space is used to mirror the figures in the positive space. Transparent silk fabrics  are
used to continue to develop the interplay between figure, background/ foreground and
negative / positive space. Color is used to flatten the space and to foster a design aspect.

Compositions are studied, enlarged and reduced to the bare essentials.
The collages are a combination of craft papers, fabric and hand-drawn figures
in colored pencil and oil pastels.
REDLINES - 24" X 36"
