Shaun Caton collage
Shaun makes hundreds of collages and loves working with coloured cardboard and paper. His fingers are covered in glue every day! He first started making collages in about 1980 but since 2016 has been developing a powerful visual language that is unique to his art. The collage works rely on the emotive juxtaposition of intensely saturated colour and are a more refined and simplified version of his paintings, often employing the same characters and objects which pop up time and again. Shaun sees his collages as ‘unfinished stories’ which the viewer can interpret in a variety of ways. Many collages explore rituals and magic, others focus on abstractions of nature and the supernatural. The ideas for his collages are derived from his dreams, which he has been recording since 1988.
