Florence Weisz Sensuous Stripes

“Stripes 12”

Florence Weisz works in collage as her primary medium. Over the years she has explored many visual ideas seeking distinctive materials and innovative ways to express them. The “Sensuous Stripes” series stems from her fascination with rigid patterns of parallel lines and how they become undulating and sensual when draped on the human body. These stripe collages have evolved from 2-D abstractions combined with her signature alcohol ink papers into 3-D compositions and site-specific installations.
