  • About the Art

    Artwork by Sara Pearce: www.paperwithapast.com About the Artist: "After years as an editor/critic/columnist/reporter at newspapers large and small, USA TODAY, Orlando Sentinel, Nashville Banner, Cincinnati Enquirer, to name a few, I turned to storytelling in a new way: collage. I'm mostly self taught, and find my materials by cruising yard sales, flea markets, used book shops, thrift stores and back roads, and by diving into errant dumpsters or trash cans. I badger friends, family, and even strangers for their discards. The older and grungier the paper, the better; though newer, recycled paper finds its way into my work. In other words: I've no shame when it comes to paper, but I do when it comes to collage making. No photocopies. No computers. No faux ephemera. Just the real thing. Painstakingly cut, pasted, and glued, layer by layer." About the Art: Sifting through history to learn about the origins of plant varieties is like going on a archaeological dig. Through collage, artist Sara Pearce reimagines giant peas, slaloming down Swiss slopes, towards the buried remains of early dwellers.
