A series of 8 Digital Collages are the collaborative artwork of individual participants, layered and reworked in the creative engagement of Place Names Melville.
Referencing 3 place names in the Melville area- Goolagatup, Willagee and Jenalup - the digital collage combines individual responses to patterns, texture, rhythms and reflections found on country with layers of mark making, line drawings and paper collage.
The collaborative collage was a layered process, with participants using other participants' initial line and mark making using lead pencil, charcoal, pastel, charcoal and ink to create a paper collage. The idea was to dissolve an individualistic focus to a community value of place. Combining a collective energy of many artworks layered upon artworks to create these abstract sensory collages, reflecting communities strong connection to boodjar.
