I find Jill Ricci‘s work to be beautifully dramatic and nostalgic at the same time. The overlay of patterns and shapes instantly grab your eye. But while you continue to look at it, the faded colours and sense of layering give the feeling like a great hidden history can be retold by peeling away each cut-out. It’s as if behind each pattern is a story and window to a different memory and emotion. Based on our own narratives, we can approach each collage with different interpretations and feelings.

The last piece is my favourite. For me, it evokes romanticized visions of vintage Parisian walls with bold patterns of the fashion houses peeking out. What stories can you interweave together from the works below?
