Proof that this newspaper is a work of art
Competition winner takes delivery of her unique prize, created from the pages of the IoS
Sunday 18 April 2010
Here's a collectors' edition of
The Independent on Sunday with a difference. Lynne Pearce has proudly mounted this magnificent collage created out of pages of the
IoS in the hallway of her home in Exmouth, Devon.
Lynne, 52, won our competition to have a work of art specially created by the artist Amanda Page. Amanda makes incredibly intricate collages out of torn up pages of the IoS because "it tears very easily and the colours are unique".
In February, we asked which famous collage artist created the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper album cover. The answer was Peter Blake, and we were inundated with entries. Lynne was the first out of the hat, and Amanda kindly agreed to make a specially commissioned work out of that week's paper.
The prize artwork was delivered last Wednesday. "I'm delighted with it," said Lynne, who has just moved to Exmouth. "It's very, very clever and absolutely fantastic. It has exceeded the very high expectations I had for it. Everybody wants to come and see it and has been asking about it. The detail is beautiful and can only really be appreciated from very close up.
"I've put it in the hallway for now, as I'm a bit worried about how the light might affect it. But everyone can see it is as soon as they come in, so it's a real talking point. A photograph doesn't really do it justice."
The work is entitled Headline News, and Amanda, who describes her work more as "assemblages" than collages, said she was inspired by our newspaper. "I can't divulge how long it takes," she said, "but it is a very long time. I used the paper the competition was in but also a few more – I have a box full of papers."
