Who is Miss Printed?
Miss Printed is a Norwegian based artist who is filling the gap between Collage, Photography and Streetart. She is born in the Netherlands on a car-free sunday 1973. In the Netherlands she worked many years at Knust, part of ArtHouse Extrapool. Here she worked at many different artprojects, mostly with mimeographing print (riso-print). Summer 2007 she emigrated to Norway where she lives in a rural area. Her passion is “Locative Collage”. She makes small paper collages and photograph them in an outdoor setting that reinforces the story she wants to tell. She photographs her collages on location under adverse conditions. She loves to combine paper elements and its predators: water,fire, snow, wind and sky She does not use any form of digital editing. In an urban environment she leaves her papercuts behind. Leaving bits of sanity for others to reflect upon. She believes in the accumulation of small gestures. The more we can engage people with our ideas, the more we can empower people to think, feel, dream, the better the world will be. She has been working with Locative Collage and collage since 2014. She have had several exhibitions in Norway, Uk and USA. August 2016, she opened a museum The Scandinavian Collage Museum. She is the founder of The Collageclub, an international group of collage artists that uses the same image to make a collage with. She is also the founder of the Collage Garden, a project which grows paper gardens around the world. Often she gets messages of people who are inspired by her work and take their papercuts outside to photograph. This makes her sing out loud in her little red house on a mountain in NorwayRead more on Nettside
