- the story
A Rainbow Rain
Nature makes us wait for the rain to pass before we enjoy the rainbow, but this intricately layered collage breaks that law. Contrasted against neutral paper, vivid droplets descend upon a desolate home, offering warmth and calm during the storm. The artist, Hollie Chastain, seeks out the most interesting, often imperfect archival paper to use in her work, adding even greater depth to the stories of each piece she creates. Made in Tennessee and printed in Oregon.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

- the maker
After leaving a career in graphic design I decided to get back in the studio to my analog roots. Collage was a medium that I had never given much thought to so it seemed perfect for a fresh start. I have always been a collector of found and vintage paper so there was plenty around to experiment with and I found that I really connected with the personality and history and additional story that reusing these vintage materials added to a work. Because I am self-taught in collage I feel a freedom to follow my gut and keep my process pure and love the contrast between old weathered and stained paper and bright colorful bursts. collection

Comments about EXIT 119:
I love this piece even more after it arrived; it looks perfect on my wall. It is rustic yet the simply framing makes it current. The house reminds me of the farm where I grew up and the background paper straight out of my childhood. The colored raindrops are a great message and bring the entire collage to life. I look at this daily and enjoy it so much.
