Collage is a central and ever present component of Evelyn Rapin’s art practice. During the creative process, Rapin summons all of her artistic skills including drawing, painting and printmaking and skillfully incorporates encaustic, textiles and various papers to create an expressive and interesting outcome.
“Collage is exciting; it is all about selection and decision-making but with existing imagery and/or various materials whether papers, photographs, flowers, textiles or memorabilia. It is an experimental endeavor that can be unplanned and unpredictable in the production of a successful artwork.” – Evelyn Rapin
The artist’s latest body of work, Plants Music Peace, is a series that both explores music and its many facets and reflects a plea for peace around the globe.
