A Dancing Mermaid

This was one of the very early originals- and was completed in 2014, one of the first years Emily was making these high-density collages. (Though at that point she was calling it “Scrap-art.”) Emily grew up with Disney movies, so this mermaid does resemble one from an old animated film, but also this mermaid was designed while Emily was going through a hair dying phase and dyed her hair into a purple fading into orange ombre. She also had a large collection of underwater stickers left over from a classroom project and recalls this mermaid dancing with a dolphin came to her in a dream.

The background of this original was the first to go down onto the cardboard it was drawn on- all blues and water scenes then covered with a layer of patterned blue tissue paper. Fish stickers were painted slightly and then also layered into the tissue paper.

The mermaid’s skin tone was made by cutting apart models in a variety of different magazines, and all with different shades. This technique Emily uses still in most of her Fancy Ladies. The Mermaid’s hair was done in purples, then with dimension twisted strips of paper layering on top of it. The paper was twisted by wrapping it around a pencil. The mermaid’s tail was created by cutting apart a peacock sticker- as well as adding some trimmed glitter paper.

Her dancing partner- the dolphin, was created with some paint as well as cut newspaper. If you look closely some of the words apparent in the newspaper portion of the dolphin are words that are loosely associated with dolphins- such as “great heights” and “jumping.”

Completed originals are scanned by Terry at Artist's Resource Group in NE Minneapolis, where his ever-improving technology has paved the way for textured reproductions. This Dancing Mermaid reproduction is crisp and clear and very dimensional looking on the flat surface. This Mermaid is also available printed on gallery wrapped canvas or on white metal and can be ordered via email: emlavart@gmail.com
