ARTWORK

Scope and Content of Series

Series 3) ARTWORK. Arranged in seven subseries: A) Collages, B) Book Collages, C) Box Collages, D) Fan Collages, E) Mask Collages, F) Sketches and G) Watercolors. Materials in each subseries are arranged alphabetically by title. In cases when a title was not supplied by Notley, a title was created based on a topic sentence or major feature or theme of the work. The subjects of Notley's artworks vary from human portraits, women's figures, still lifes, and landscapes to abstract objects, shapes and colors. Her style is sensuous, lyrical and humorous. She often incorporates traditional elements of Chinese and Japanese art in her collages.
