collage art diet 2016 – week 6

The cut-outs for the pieces below are from one single image. They look very delicate and soft on paper. I have played around with the composition and simple arrangements and enhanced them by subtle stitching.

collage diet challenge – Day 21- Happy Yalda – Winter Solstice

Day 21 of december 2015 collage diet challenge. Tonight is Shabe Yalda – Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year. I found these pomegranates jewels and couldn’t help honouring this magical night by some playful collages with them as the focus. Pomegranates (also my most favorite fruit on the planet) are beautiful symbols of Yalda, the ancient Persian tradition of celebrating the arrival of winter, renewal of the sun and the victory of light over darkness.  Like a good old Iranian, tonight I am gathering with friends and family, will stay awake past midnight and fill the night with stories, hopefully some poems and indulging ourselves in luscious pomegranates, watermelon and pistachios. Not too bad!

and, this is not like any of my usual work but why not!
