Layers of Love is an interactive collage-making website that was created by Khadija Aziz and Laura Kay Keeling in early 2021. Thinking about care and collaboration, Khadija and Laura created the website to engage the public in their art making and to invite artists and audiences alike to experience the power of working together with creativity and generosity. In partnership with the RMG, Layers of Love is now home to a bank of images that were created by Khadija and Laura, as well as three new artist contributors: kaya joan, Nicole Krstin, and Yahn Nemirovsky. You are invited to explore the art of collage making and watch as a gallery of community-made collages grows on this webpage and on Layers of Love.Layers of Love x RMGMake a digital collage!
