Colette Crutcher : Artwork Made By Hand
My career began with painting and printmaking, but my work now covers a broad spectrum, from very large to very small, from public to intensely personal, from abstract to figurative, and across a range of media: painting and drawing, collage, assemblage, paper mache, concrete, ceramic and mosaics.
I hope that a single voice can be distinguished speaking in all of these different tongues.
I draw inspiration from the great artistic traditions of many cultures, and from isolated, quirky individuals mining their own psyches for material.
I particularly enjoy the artistic/architectural installations by outsider artists, from Simon Rodia to the Facteur Cheval, that I've been lucky enough to visit. I hope my future includes some projects of a similar scale and scope.
