“I Dream of Capsian”
collage, acrylic, ink, oil on vintage canvas paravan, triptych
2022, by Vanessa Compton
When my Grandmother Kay Brown (also a professional collagist) passed into the spirit realm, this triptych paravan was left untouched in her studio. The canvas was blank, waiting to be created upon. With it I wanted to make a collage inspired by a piece she had created in the late 80’s, a collage that celebrated the lake and land surrounding Greensboro, VT, a place we had both called home. This is my response piece, informed by childhood memories and what I carry into my own adulthood and the present. Rooted in reality but never bound by it.
