Ambrosine Allen Limited Edition
Ambrosine Allen creates intricate collages from obsolete encyclopaedias and discarded books. Her Limited Edition, The Cloud-capt Mountain, which is part of our Curated Editions collection New Mythologies, references seventeenth and eighteenth-century landscapes and aims to create a sense of tension and flux.
‘Because the making process is so time consuming, the landscape changes anyway – almost in the way it would in the natural world. Parts rise and fall, skies and clouds come and go as I build up the layers.’
