Lani Asher: Artist Statement

My paper-based collages are constructed with photographs,painting,and drawings,joined together on the backside with rice paper and glue.I build up the delicate surfaces with layers of paint, pencil and rice paper, giving the collages a tactile and sculptural dimension. In 2016 I began an ongoing series of drawings that echo the shapes,colors,textures,empty spaces, linear qualities,and the narratives found in my collages.
