Artist Creates Multiple Paintings to Hand-Cut and Reassemble Them Into A Single Art Piece

Vancouver based mixed media artist Anastasia Kimmett creates abstract paintings with variety of media including but not limited to ink, oil pastel, gold and silver leaf. Her art is inspired by nature - birch and aspen trees, landscapes, seasons and forest animals are the recurring theme in her work. She creates several paintings of the same subject matter on a heavy card, then hand-cuts them into small pieces that are reassembled into one art piece. The papers are fastened to a stained board and varnished for durability.

"Her works are rich in color and inspire the imagination to see depth and unlimited images and landscapes. What is seen when standing back from a finished piece will vary from person to person and from moment to moment but when one looks closer at 'the big picture', it will reveal itself for what it truly is, a collection of beautiful, tiny building blocks of pure emotion.
