Remembrance

Remembrance, collage, by Karen Koch“Remembrance” uses a modern envelope paired with a vintage greeting card. I wanted to echo the greeting card with the other elements in the piece, so looked for papers with similar colors and feel.

As I have tried to do in other recent pieces, I was somewhat spontaneous in my approach and did not over analyze the selection and placement of elements. I wanted the overall effect to be loose and energetic, full of life, though the style of the vintage card hints at having been used to remember a life that has ended.
