Collage' / Montage'
by Cheryl

 

Cheryl's unusual compositions of Collage' / Montage' artwork are assembled from found objects. These found objects, are thoughtfully gathered into delicate, whimsical compositions combining aspects of the familiar with the imaginary into a single, coherent, arresting metaphor.

 

Her mythical and factual landscapes are both comforting and evocative, calling forth memories, dreams, buried perceptions -- fleeting glimpses of a harmonious and untroubled world where elemental forces coexist with humankind.

 

Cheryl Olsen's visions provide an oasis where the mind can rest and reflect, before resuming its journey.
