James Ransome is an award-winning illustrator of over fifty children’s books. He began working in collages as a creative exercise in his sketchbooks. Working with torn, painted, cut, new and found papers in larger formats, Ransome creates what he calls Painting with Paper. His abstract designs use graphic design elements of shape, color, line and typography.
A graduate of Pratt Institute, Ransome’s collage works are influenced by Matisse, Romare Bearden, Robert Rauschenberg, Richard Diebenkorn, the quilt work from the Women of Gees Bend, Robert Motherwell and many other Abstract Expressionists.
Both books and collage work will be available.
