You are invited to the gallery to meet Danielle and find out more about her work

An exhibition of ripped paper collages by Danielle Vaughan of famous people and places in and around Leicester. Working without paint, Danielle uses the simple technique of ripping and sticking found printed materials.  The torn and ragged edges of magazine print, fragments of different typefaces and surface patterns, are skilfully layered and counterpointed forming complex layers of tone and colour to create her 'painterly' compositions.  

Ask Danielle what excites her about her work and she points out the playful elements and hidden messages within the pictures.  The 'Singer' Sewing machine advert hidden in a pop star portrait, or, the names of fashion designers who do not use fur hidden in her fox study.
