Wedding Paper Portrait

A Papered Portrait. Commissioned by a couple who wanted a life-sized portrait of them on their wedding day. Their chosen photograph was used as a reference by Marion and re-imagined into a life sized papered portrait. 

Marion took a traditional oil painting to a fresh and papered level. By sourcing, composing and cutting paper cutouts from an array of vintage and old magazines and papers from her ‘accumulated over the years’ collection. A composition of colours and shapes which were applied onto 12mm plywood, then sealed with many layers of varnish for protection. 

A pressed red rose is the only non paper item in this portrait. 

“We are beyond thrilled with our wedding day portrait – it’s innovative and fresh and a treasured heirloom”  Neil & Ruth
