Desert contemporary artist Althea Sassman integrates handmade, decorative and found recycled papers onto canvas to create an alluring textural element not found in traditional painting. Although possibly viewed as an oil or acrylic painting at first glance, the vibrant colors and textures of these papers layered with other various collage material lead the observer in for more detail, only to discover an intriguing form of torn paper collage.
