The Hermit's Bothy collage depicts an expressive Winter scene. What appears to be an empty home, reveals signs of life, amidst with a slightly skewed perspective.
The more you look, the more the signs that someone has just left: the smouldering fire with slippers by it, footprints, and a general feeling of tasks abandoned midway through.
Crafted using a variety of materials and techniques, the collage was assembled slowly, layer-by-layer to create a complex narrative. Part of the Hibernation series – a family of six paper collages exploring the rich tapestry of Winter. Each unique piece tells the story of homecoming, from long walks through the cold, to the comfort and warmth of the interior.
