Written Poetry in Paper Collages Form Intricate Designs

British artist Caroline Attan combines folded paper collages and handwritten poetry to create intricate and beautiful designs. Primarily using the expressive poetry of Pablo Neruda, she writes the text in rings, adding delicately folded paper shapes on top of the words to create circular compositions that are dizzying in their bold colors and mesmerizing designs. Each abstract form is unique in both the textual base and the visual appearance, but all of Attan’s creations have the same beautiful symmetry and intricate detail.

According to Attan, her artwork “draws on a decade of research into the role of objects in the formation of memory, identity and personal history” and “function as loaded repositories of the past.” She says, “Tantalizing snatches of memories and desire revolve endlessly over collaged backgrounds, encouraging the viewer along multiple strands of thought.” Through the combination of text and image, she wishes to evoke the content and interpretation of the poetry and its meaning to the viewer.
