French term or phrase: jeu de filigranes
I know what "filigrane" means but I'm not sure how to translate this term. Thanks, Karen

Le style de cette artiste se caractérise par une expérimentation de la matière et une palette de
couleurs franches.
Elle travaille notamment sur le coton, la toile ou le papier huilé.
Sa peinture est composée de **jeu de filigranes**, de collages délicats de papiers, de variations
infinies de couches de couleurs.
