Good morning, good morning! I was just catching up with a few messages and whatnot around Etsy when I stumbled upon these gorgeous artworks and had to drop everything to hop over here and share them with you... !
These inspirational 'Letter Collages' are by Boston based, Spanish artist Catalina Viejo Lopez de Roda. Each one is a letter that conveys the artist's emotions to a particular person or subject, but instead of using the written word she has hand cut and collaged tiny snippets of paper to illustrate her thoughts.
Literal words are turned into shapes of color, and specific palettes and structures arrive in each letter. Most of the collage elements are recycled adding a sense of history to the letter."
Middle left: Letter to Those Who Think Outside the Box, middle right: Letter to a Poet.
Bottom left: Letter to Hans Hoffman, bottom right: Letter to the ones we've Lost.
Aren't they beautiful and inspiring? Can you sense the emotions in these letters? Joy and pleasure, sadness and loss, hope and optimism... Wouldn't you just love to have something like this drop through your wee letterbox?
Catalina sells her collages alongside her other work in her Etsy shop and if you would like to find out more you can visit her website too... :)
