||Collage, from the French word “coller”, meaning to paste is the medium award winning New Jersey artist, Suzanne Lippe, uses to express herself. Her works are an artistic composition of a variety of materials including hand-made and exotic papers and found objects.
The works are both an assembly of materials and ideas. A collection of Jewish-theme works incorporate symbols, words and images reflecting Jewish thoughts, prayers, holidays and life cycle events. Using original and reproduced pages from antique books as the background, embellishments are added to enhance the words and meaning. Some of the pages come from books rescued from Nazi fires. Some of the materials come from Israel.
The artwork adds both beauty and spirituality to the home.
