Open edition digital reproduction of the mixed media art: the original hand-torn newspaper collage art dog portrait Japanese Bobtail. and the clay dye & the hand-made stencil.  Copyright © 2014 by Keiko Suzuki.


"Japanese Bobtail" 

A bobtail cat is curiously looking out a window. The angle of the kitty's image shows the cute little pompom tail and the facial expression of looking afar, into the distance. My hand-torn newspaper collage-making technique gives a soft edge to the shape of the cat which perfectly expresses the fur's fluffiness. It will be any bobtail cat lover's favorite piece. This subtly cute piece will be an eye-catcher displayed anywhere - in an office, an entrance, a living room, a bedroom etc.

The Patterned Background

After many trials and errors, I finally found a great eco-friendly medium that is perfectly compatible with my original hand-torn collage art pieces. It uses traditional Japanese clay dyes that are made for coloring fabrics. It is called Bengara and is manufactured by a small company in Japan. With their dye thickener, the company advised me that I could use the dyes as paint. I created stencils of traditional Japanese patterns by hand, and generated different styles for the backgrounds using these dyes. Finally I matched the backgrounds with some of my original hand-torn collage art pieces, using Photoshop, and then this new mixed media art collection was born.

The picture comes matted and unframed.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industrys standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
