Margaret Mellis, Sobranie Collage, 1942

This artwork is by an artist from St Ives, Margaret Mellis, and Tate St Ives will be showing it until September 2011. It’s made of collage materials pasted onto cardboard.

The artist has used labels from grocery packets for their colours, including a toilet paper wrapper!

Does it remind you of an international letter, with lots of different stamps and postmarks on it? Another way to look at it would be as two people on a cliffside, looking out at a big sail on the sea. What does the collage look like to you?

    One day a family of 2 came to Calovia. When they came in the land land they saw that people were trembling and when they looked at the sky they saw a red sheet covering the sky. They did not know what to think so they backed up to leave. But when they did they hit something cold and thick. They looked up and saw a monster with fangs and claws. They Calovians screamed and one said ” run the zageria is back. The father asked ” what is a zageria?”. The woman answered him with ” a zageria is a terrible beast that comes back on a full moon every 2 years to find a feast. Last year he ate the mayor and his wife.”. The family wanted to run but it was to late. They had been swept up by the terrible beast and taken to a dark dungeon. They were thrown into it with a single bulb light and only a pail of water to drink and a single loaf of bread to eat. They waited for weeks to be taken out and rescued. But nobody ever came. One day while sleeping among the filth a light shone above them. The terrible beast swept the son up and gobbled him down. The father was furious. He grabbed the sword and shield and stabbed the beast in the heart. The beast fell and died. Even though he had lost his son he was proud he concered a mighty beast. Every one in the land worshiped him and one of his servants married him and they had 1 son and 1 daughter. When he died they built a statue of him in the park. Nobody knew what had happened to his son. Only the father knew. But one day the people went to see where the beast had died. When they got there they found the mayor,the mayor`s wife, and the son alive and well in the belly of the beast. When they had climbed out they fed them and told their story. Soon after everyone died, they land turned to ice and melted. Nobody was left to tell their story. Exept me.

    This artwork of Margaret Mellis it expresses her feelings and has lots of textures. It reminds me of summer with different types of weather for instance the rough heat and the smooth heat.

  10. brianna, age 13, from wisconsin

    This paintingis telling me a sory, about a little girl and here is the beginning.

    One day a little girl tells her mom ” mom i ant a candy bar.” her mom said “no maybe later.” so later she and her mom go out get two chocolate candy bars and walk home. when they where done the mom put the rappers on the har wood surface coffee table. So what im saying is that the back of the painting is a hard wooden coffee table and the front looks like a old fashion candy bar raper.

    I gental sunk my fangs into the foxes neak and felt the blood flow into my mouth. My sences were on fire. I could feel the nip of the wind on my bare arms like it was going as fast as a cheetah. The blood tasted sweet. I could feel that too. I could feel it slide down my throat, warm and great tasting. I could not help what i was. My whole life was now a blood bath.
    I used to be a normal human. I was 18 during the first world war, however being a women I was not alowed to join the war. On my 19th birthday a was walking home when I was attacked by a beast in human form… and that is what i have become.

    One day in 1942, a very Eco-friendly artist named Margaret Mellis saw many reusable things on the floor of her friend’s house. She thought that if she coud gather reusable thinngs like what she saw, she could make art. She told her friend, Alice (i made the name up) ” Alice, do you mind if I take these things on the floor?” Her friend was puzzled. Alice said: “Marga(nickname), why on earth would you collect rubbish?!” “Alice, these are reusable things, not rubbish at all! I could make millions with this. I will continue the rest of my life with art, art made of these, these as in reusable things, not rubbish. You’ll see, I will become famous!” So, Mellis collected the things and went home. She used things like labels, and the wrapper for toilet paper! She made a collage of reusable things on card board. She called the collage “Sobranie Collage”.

    It was a hot day at the oasis in the Sahara desert. The hilly dunes were being blown away by the harsh wind. The water was evaporating. The sky was no longer a cornflower blue but a sky that was as deep and red as blood. And the ruins of the ghers from yesterday’s storm were slashed up and lifeless, on the sand. The horrible sight was being stared at from innocent, wide, brown eyes of a little girl.

    Once apon a time there were two little birds. One of them had bright, colorful feathers of red, orange, pink, and yellow with all the shades in between. The other one was dark with earthy tones of black, blue, green, and brown. The birds names were Light and Dark. Even though they were twin sisters they weren’t alike. Dark liked the nighttime, moon and damp caves. Light enjoyed the sun, daytime, and sunny meadows. One day they had a huge fight about if the sun or moon is better. “The moon is better because it’s when nighttime is . It’s nice and cool and it’s when the stars come out and the crickets start to sing.” Dark said. “No, the sun is better because that when daytime is out. It’s warm and sunny and it helps the tress and plants grow.” Light said. “The moon is better!,” Dark shouted. “No, the sun is!,” Light shouted back.
    “The moon is!,” Dark shouted.
    “The sun is!,” Light shouted back.
    “The moon!”
    “The sun!”
    “Moon!”
    “Sun!”
    “Moon!”
    “Sun!”
    They went like that forever until Light said “Fine! If you like the moon so much why don’t you go live there.” “Fine! If you like the sun so much why don’t you live there,” Dark shouted back. “Fine. I guess I will,” Light said as she started to fly away, then Dark started to fly away too. After they left they never talked too each other again. After that day the sun and moon never met again because Dark and Light were still mad at each other and made sure the sun and moon never were together. That’s why the sun and moon are never together and never will be until the birds forgive each other.

Also, in that envelope, there was some coins and a candy bar wrapper because the coin and the candy bar wrapper both had Annette’s face on them. ”I hope Annette likes this gift!” Polly mumbled to her daughter, Jessica. The letter read

    DEAR ANNETTE,

    This painting is just amazingly very quirky its a very diffrent picture. This is not a story but i dont quiet see that theres well 3 princes and a king or a queen and so on and so on but for me this picture is telling a story of love. where the man is the quiet bigger round sticker the black one and the woman is the blue one. As Taliah and Sam sweep through the air to the edge of the cliffs of dover they come to a stand still. Taliah looks out along the long blue ocean. But Sam as he comes to a stand still he looks out along the coast he sees a a chance to sweep taliah off her feet with a line “Will you Marry me” Taliah turned to answer but slipped and fell back but lucky sam reaches her at the right moment and pulls her close. She hears his heart pounding. She starts to cry and just when sam was going to say something. Taliah says “YES” at the top of her lungs and they then both were flooding with tears of joy. The End :)

    It was a dark and stormy night. I was about to go to bed when I heard a tapping sound on my window.
    “Who’s there?” I shouted. Suddenly there was a flash of lightning; I saw a face at the window. It looked like an alien … an alien that I had seen on the television show, “the X files.”
    I felt very scared. I ran to my bed and pulled my blanket over my head. I started to shout for my parents but there was no reply. Then I remembered that they were at a fancy dress party.

    I peeped out of my blanket but it was too dark to see anything. Then I heard footsteps. They were getting louder and louder. It was dark but I knew the way to my drawer where I kept my camera. I ran there and took out my camera and started to take pictures in the direction of the window. Soon the footsteps died off.

    The grandfather clock struck … … It was 12 midnight. I went back to my bed and tried to sleep. But I could not sleep. I felt too frightened. I sat up, my mind was full of thoughts. Time passed … one o’clock, two o’clock, three o’clock, four o’clock. Finally, I fell asleep.
    I woke up only after eight and decided to investigate. I found some footprints outside my bedroom window. I measured them with a tape and found them to be exactly the same size as my father’s shoes. The footprints ended at the door of my house. I then went to town to get the film developed. But when I saw the photos I was shocked. They were black and I could hardly see anything. Then I remembered that I did not use the flash.

    When I reached home I told my father the whole incident and he started to laugh. I started laughing too when he told me that he had dressed up as an alien for the party. Today, I am still amused to think I was so afraid of my own father.

    I opened the cupboard and gazed in amazement at two tins, paint scraped on their dented aliminium surface. I stroked the little bumps and closed my eyes for a minute. I opened them shortly afterwards and saw no tins in my hands. I looked at the floor, and then at the bare cupboard. Had this happened to everything else? Had they ALL simply disappeared? I picked up the scraps of paper from cereal packets and boxes of tea and kitchen roll and wrapped chocolate and examined them. I never remembered eating them, or anyone else eating them. I sighed and shook my head. My life was full of mysteries. Mysteries, but never adventurous ones. Not the kind of mysteries you’d find in detectives stories or anything, just unexplained, easily forgetable mysteries.

    It traveled far. Far across the world, across the universe it seemed. It flew through space; through time its self. Its great adventures, it could not tell, but I can make those up for myself.
    It started one day in the house of miss Anabell Lee. She love to write and one day she decided to pick a random adress to send something to. In this letter she wrote.
    “To whom it may concern:
    Hello! I am writing to see how far this can go. After you get it add your name to the bottom of the card and send it along it’s merry way.
    Thank you,
    Miss Anabell Lee”

    So when this reached the next person, he sent it along and so did all the others after it. Then I got it. And I, just as the others sent it along. I tried to find Miss Anabell, but she was nowhere. Later I found that she had passed away. I her honor, I painted this picture to show how important this letter was to people. This is how I came to paint this time less peice of art.

    I took a deep breath and silently, steadily and with great excitement I stepped into the cool, dark cave. I had been waiting all my young life to get here, within stepping distance of one of the most magical creatures to have ever been imagined. Would I survive, or would I be swallowed up in the hot, licking flames of the creature’s breath? I could only keep walking towards my destiny. In the dim light, I could just see the leathery scales and I could hear the gentle rise and fall of the creature’s breathing. Then, the dragon slowly stirred.

    In the morning I got out of bed grabbed my phone and dialed :0957294, I was relieved Clara answered quickly.
    “I have a feeling we will have to sneak out.” I said
    “Why?” said Clara Doors
    ”I have seen loads of lost puppy signs, they seem to be every where.“
    “Ok, thanks speak to you later” I said
    “Jones” (the butler)
    “Yes madam?“
    ”I am breaking out.“ I said jumping out the window on my jet wings, after a short journey I landed at Clara’s house.
    While I was walking to Clara’s front door, Harry and George came on their scooters “Rosie” they chanted.
    “What?” I replied
    “ You are walking to the wrong place.”
    ”No I’m not”
    “Oh yes you are, we saw a strange looking bloke going inside, he opened the door with a key, maybe Clara has moved?”
    “Really, well she has asked me to come over as she had something urgent to tell me about the puppy posters that are stuck to every lamp-post and tree in the district.”
    “Perhaps, you should be careful, Rosie.”

When parents was old and the childs are gone to the world, they stayed alone in a little house near Scarborough Fair. But all year, some days before chrismas, there come lots of letters to there house. They are from there children, because they live all around the world and can’t visit there parents in Great Britain. They all tell them from there live and there familys and send them lots of pictuares. The parents are very happy about this, so they made this collage. Because all the time, when they feel lounly, they see it and think about there childs and know, that they are not alone.

    Last week me and my good freind found ourselves stuck on a dessert island. It was really hot and we had hardly nothing with us which proved to be quite useful in the end though. We both sat down next to a massive camel which looked quite human, in fact it didn’t look like a camel at all. Anyway we both took off our backpacks so that we could lie down. I don’t how this next bit happened but we both drifted off to sleep and woke up to find shreads of the piece paper that were in backpack, we also woke up to an old gentleman who decieded to take us back to Tate Modern so that we could make our way back. Once we had arrived back in Tate Modern I suddenly had a thought, that the shreads of paper in our backpack we could use to make a collage. So that we could always rememeber that day of the backpack and the camel.

    Haunted School And The Girl Who Was Locked Inside The Bathroom

    James and Kelly were walking through the streets quickly, the wind blew heavily like a ghost flying in with his companions. Shivering in the cold wind, they ended up to a school with 3 planks of wood across the door “DO NOT TRY ENTER…” It red dripping red paint, at least they thought it was….

    Banging the door down, they entered the school. windows smashed like a burglar broke inside, grafitti in red and black “BAD PLACE…”
    “GO AWAY” James and Kelly, thought it was a bad idea to be here. They went upstairs, into a classroom with dusty chairs “DEATH” Wrote on the chalkboard as a rotten skeleton sat on a half-broken chair. They continued there journey round the Horror school. reaching to a girls bathroom, hearing echoing Mysterious Whispers, kelly gasped seeing a white mist ‘Humans arent allowed..” james gulped shaking “Who are you?” the ghost hovered at flew slowly to the children “Im Ella…I Got locked inside this bathroom, by 2 mean girls who always bullied me..” james looked at the sad ghost weird;y “How long have you been locked in here?” as the ghost rubbing her hand up slowly and down the bathroom door she replied in a ghostly gentle voice “In Ghost Years… 10000 Years” James shedded a tear, feeling sorry for the young ghost ‘You best be off… Hurry, My Mentors will be back…GO!” She screamed in a echoing way. They both ran as fast as cheetah, going past clinking chains and splattterd blood on the wall. Back at home, they breathed heavily “Lets promise to never ever go anywhere like that again!” James wiped his forehead ‘Agreed… Now Give me £10!’ James replied “What For!?” If Kelly can remember she then said ‘I Said this place would be Scary!” James moaned queitly as Kelly clicked her fingers quickly. “Goodnight!’ they both said

    So, Lorry was genuinly being an idiot in Biology class, boring the hours away, with the teacher rabbiting on, by trying to blu tack his pencil to his foot and then trying( i said TRYING) to bite the pencil off his foot. All under his desk in the Biology Lab. Oh, he just couldnt WAIT to fool around in the Bottlesby Manor woods (strictly forbidden to any non members of the Thierry-Edgar family.

    It was Christmas eve and Daisy, her brother Sam, Mum and Dad, were putting the presents in neat piles under their decorated Christmas tree. All the wrapping was different coulers, Red and gleaming blue, stripy yellow and orange spotty with reindeer’s, and lots of others.
    “Wow, look at that one!” Laughed Sam clapping his chubby little hands. Mum put the last 2 presents under their gleaming tree.
    “Yes Sam, and now that all of THOSE are done we can have dinner!” She declared happily. Daisy wasn’t in a talking mood. She wanted to have Christmas and play with Shibbia, the cute tabby cat that Dad bought Mum for her birthday last year. Then she would go straight to bed.
    “Yes!” Dad shouted, picking up Sam, whirling him around, and they ran into the kitchen. “Mum, can I have an early present after dinner?” Daisy asked hopefully.
    Dad frowned. “We’ll see.” He said. “You need to stop asking for things.”
    Daisy stayed silent for the rest of her delicious dinner. Why was Dad so grumpy at her? “Cheer up Daisy, sweetheart!” Mum saw her hopeful eyes and… “Yes, open a small present now,”
    Daisy sprinted to the living room where the Xmas tree was, and opened a beautiful silver parcel with her name tag attached to it. Inside was the most gorgeous diamond silver studded white gold hoop earrings, the kind Daisy had always wanted. “Wooooooow!!” Daisy whispered, her large blue eyes happily gleaming. “Well, Daisy if that’s good, then you know how much you’ll love your proper gifts tomorrow, eh?” Dad said smiling, gently patting Daisy on the back of her pink silk dressing gown.

    I can’t believe what my mum just did! Can you guess? She threw away all my comics! And when I say all of them, I mean all of them. Well all of them ecept for the boring ones that my mum thinks are ‘sutibal’, and the way I know is this. . .
    I was looking for my skateboard outside, by the dustbins whyen a gust of wind blew the dustbin lid of (it was a windy day you see). I was just about to run after it when I saw Superman staring up at me! I rushed up the stairs and stared at the empty magazien rack. At the momment I am plucking up the courage to go downstairs and ask my mum what her mental problems are. Well good luck to me!

    As Margaret lay on her bed, complaining about the weather, about her hunger and of how bored she was her mother decided to make a suggestion.
    “Why don’t you do something creative, go out with some friends or go for a walk and grab something to eat along the way?” she asked.
    Although she was a complainer, she was obedient towards her parents and took their suggestions as an opportunity for adventure and to make the best out of it. She slowly dragged herself up off the bed and began to get ready.
    “Okay mum, I’ll do that” she replied.
    She grabbed her purse and headed out the door. Listening to her mothers words she decided she wanted to do something creative, but she also wanted to have some lunch with her friends. As she walked by the small restaurant down the road Margaret noticed a couple of her friends having lunch and took the opportunity to eat with them.
    “Hey Margaret!” yelled her friends as she walked through the door.
    “Come join us, we’ve only just ordered” they said.
    “Yeah sure” replied Margaret.
    As she sat with her friends, gossiping with their cups of coffee and meal, she noticed the cardboard that made the coffee cup, and decided she wanted to create something from it. She glanced around the table at the other mugs and wrappers from their lunch and saw the artistic side that no one usually notices.
    “Can I have your mugs and wrappers when you’re done?” she asked her friends.
    They all looked at her strangely unsure why she wanted a bunch of rubbish, “ugh okay then” they replied and with that she collected their mugs and wrappers and headed for home.
    Once she returned, she went straight to the drawing room where she laid everything out on the table and contemplated on how she was going to do this. After hours of planning and fiddling she finally had everything the way she wanted it. She had found a plain piece of cardboard and began pasting all her pieces to it. Before she knew it, her art work was complete and overtime people began to notice its texture and creativity, thus turned it from a ‘piece of cardboard with rubbish’ to an artistic masterpiece. Margaret Mellis then became an inspirational artist of all time.

    This peice is truly inspireing it has so many diffrent colors and lines. I truly love that the simple art of grocerey items can be turned into such an interesting and popular peice, at least its popular in my mind. I am though interested to know what items they are. I showed this piece to my friends and they simply loved it as well. They said that it inspired them to make pieces like it as well.
