Michelle Trahan Cardson: Mail Landscape Series No. 2
Image Size of collage: 5x7 inches, matted and framed to 11x14 inches
Michelle Trahan Carson creates energetic and contemporary landscapes using vintage envelopes as well as painted papers. At Terre Arts we have cut white mats for her original artwork and framed them in a contemporary white frame. Her landscapes look wonderful by itself or in a grouping.
Mail Landscape Series No.2 is a vibrant mountain landscape made with red and ochre, reminiscent of a desert landscape. The artwork is mounted on white handmade paper, then matted with a white mat.

"My work is inspired by a life-long love of history. My love of old paper is often the foundation of my work. It is the jumping-off point to an entirely new idea and image. Whether I am working with encaustic, paint, collage, or a combination of all three, I work in the studio with a general concept, but I am substantially informed by intuition."
