About this Artwork
Hummel works on the floor, constructing her collages out of shapes and forms she pre-cuts from painted sheets of watercolour paper. She paints each side of the paper in different colours and textures in order to give herself options. Partly regulated by structure, and partly guided by intuition, she allows planning, instinct and chance all to intervene in the creative act.
