Paper Flowers

When is a painting not a painting? When it's made from hundreds of colorful cuts of paper like Ilene Gold's garden collage. Ilene works entirely with the lush pages of magazines that bring a world of color and pattern to her work. Inspired by a trip to Verona, Italy, her scene of a barefoot walk through a flowering meadow is worthy of Botticelli's verdant fantasies. If you look closely, you'll discover that Ilene tucks tiny words into her composition as a playful reward. Reproduced here as a digital print, her inventive art makes a bright addition to a living room or bedroom. Made in Oregon.

Ilene Gold sold her first painting at just 10 years old. A student of fine arts, design, and advertising, she creates collages entirely from her collection of National Geographic magazines. She captures a painterly quality in the process, as if she's painting with paper itself. Look closely, and you may find a hidden word or phrase within each of her compositions. Thanks to this inventive approach, her collages have been selected for several juried art shows and solo exhibitions.
