‘Gathering’ by Rica Coulter
For the past decade she has focused primarily on collages using a variety of materials and imagery to create complex, layered compositions. At 91 years of age, her prolific work simultaneously feels rooted in history while speaking of the future. The immediacy of her images captures the zeitgeist of today’s generation of mixed-media artists.
