Mixed-Media Collage

Created by Chris Wheeler
This collage is created by stretching mulberry paper across large drying boards textured with acrylics. The paper is stretched on the boards for a month before being used. The paper is then shaped and glued with wheat paste that's been pressed through a horsehair strainer so that the finished artwork is free of lumps and the effect is smooth and refined. On gallery-wrapped canvas with painted sides. This process of mounting paper is typically reserved for scrolls and screens and are done by only a small group of people.
