Collage News & Inspiration
“What you make doesn’t have to be witnessed, recorded, sold, or encased in glass for it to be a work of art. Through the ordinary state of being, we’re already creators in the most profound way, creating our experience of reality and composing the world we perceive.”
— Rick Rubin, The Creative Act

Yusuf describes his own distinctive style as a mix of surrealism, pop and figurative art. An introspective artist, he also sees his collage work as a version of journaling, albeit one done publicly, and shared in a way that might connect others with similar ideas or experiences. “It creates that kind of open conversation and a community,” he said - Why this artist won’t quit on Lagos - via CNN
In the arts, collage works the same way. An artist brings together a variety of sometimes disparate elements to spark memories, associations and surprising connections for the viewer. And you guessed it: There’s a whole lot of collaged art on view right now, revealing how the technique can manifest across different mediums - ArtSEA: A playful barrage of collage at Seattle arts spaces - via Crosscut
Today, art no longer settles on a single meaning, but instead functions as a way to capture new meanings. In this way, Korean painter Heejoon Lee compares his work to a kind of “platform.” Rather than anchoring in a single idea, his abstract oil and photo collage works place viewers into a pictorial space built through experiments that can mobilize their own experiences, memories, and knowledge. Lee’s works create new meanings through their interactions with the viewer - Heejoon Lee’s Abstract Paintings Create New Encounters with the Urban Environment - via artsy
Feibelman’s three high-contrast cut paper collages were the antidote to my waning interest in the fair’s slim pickings. Each of the collages were made up from bits of free-hand cut Stonehenge paper detritus from larger works that are arranged like a mind-map or idea web of past, current, and future projects. Study-sized weavings, skeletal cuts, bent arches, stencils, patterns, foldable models, and inlays are delightfully arranged into larger compositions that flicker between two- and three-dimensional - Moments of Glory at Art on Paper - via Hyperallergic
