Anchorage Artist Guitta Corey creates these rich tapestries of color by making high-quality prints from original collages. The pieces are large and full of impact, and are printed on archival rag watercolor paper.
Guitta's 2018 show of new originals and prints is ongoing through June. Originals are available while they last.
Guitta Corey has lived and worked as an artist in Alaska since 1979. Her work is in private collections across the U.S., as well as in public buildings in Alaska. She draws her inspiration from the vast beauty of the Alaskan landscape.
Guitta graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in printmaking.
In 1995, Guitta began working with Oriental papers to create original collages, and many of her originals have been printed as giclee prints since then. Her prints have deckled edges and are mounted in acid free shrink wrap.
All of her collages have been created using paper adhered with acrylic medium. In some cases, gold or mixed metal leaf has been applied. The surface that the paper is adhered to, called the support, is either 300 lb. watercolor paper which is 100% rag, or it is a material called multimedia art board, which is neutral pH. Washi, or Japanese handmade papers, as well as ornamental papers from India and other parts of Asia, are used for the creation of the collage image. Some of the papers are opaque, others are delicate and translucent. An original collage may be created by building up many layers of translucent papers to achieve the desired textural or color effects.
