One of Amy Rice’s favorite artists is collage specialist Ida Pearle, based in NYC. Pearle sketches out scenes that are then played out by bits of patterned and coloured paper. The specialty papers used by Pearle include Coloraid (a silk-screened art paper), origami papers, wallpaper and wrapping paper. Pearle’s vignettes are mostly seasonal and theme-based, but the artist started out by creating scenes that sprung from what was going on in the lives of her friends.
