‘The Boy with the Boat, 2’ is a wonderful piece of assemblage art by contemporary artist Claire Newman-Williams.
This one off piece of art is made using wood, paper, leather, glass and nails.
A mixture of original images by Claire Newman-Williams shot on old polaroid film and blended with a found image and found text. Mounted in an antique writing slope.
Combining original photographic images, usually portraits that Claire Newman-Williams creates with old cameras and alternative processes, with found objects. She creates collages layered and arranged in antique wooden boxes. These Story Boxes are intended to be like inner landscapes, addressing the recurrent themes of the smothering of identity and our fear of being seen – truly seen by those around us.
