COLLAGE ON VIEW

Inside/Out

Butch Anthony at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, South Carolina, USA through 29 February 2020. Anthony’s work often has a charming immediacy because of the familiarity of the selected materials, yet this surface appeal is often undermined by the conceptual premise. Some images evince a biting sarcasm or ironic wit, while others poke fun at our consumerist society. MORE

COLLAGE ON VIEW

The Raw Materials of Escape

Coulter Fussell at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, South Carolina, USA through 29 February 2020. Fussell relies on the no-holds barred nature of contemporary painting rules to free her compositions from the constraints of pattern. In turn, she simultaneously relies on the strict discipline of traditional craftwork to act as a self-editing tool. MORE

COLLAGE ON VIEW

Cut Wife: A Fragmented Life Pieced Together

Dafna Steinberg at Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, Virginia, USA through 9 March 2020. Though the catalysts for Steinberg’s projects are personal, the works act as emotional responses to the current political and cultural climate. The subjects of the work cover the objectification of the female body, reproductive rights, domestic violence and continuous attacks on a woman’s right to be autonomous. MORE


COLLAGE BOOKS

Einheitskurzschrift / Unified Shorthand

by Susanna Lakner & Stefan Heuer (Redfoxpress; 2018). A collaboration through the postal service of an old coursebook that was sent back and forth between the artists on numerous occasions. Each exchange brought with it new layers from scissored images, transparent stickers, text fragments and rubdown lettering from Stuttgart and Burgdorf, South and West Germany. MORE

SCHWITTERS ARMY

Shipwrecked by Linda Feula

SA029LF20ART. Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA. "I equate collage to dreaming. My dreams are images meshed together with feelings and emotions that I’ve had, and knitted together to form a loose story that is not fully understood yet visually beautiful or meaningful. I can say the same for collage. I collect, mostly paper, images, textures and colours during the waking hours, set them aside, revisit them later to arrange and adhere them to a surface where a loose story, not fully understood becomes tangible."

Picture 33B: No cherry by Madcollage

SA033MC20ART. Williston, Vermont, USA. The artist writes, “I was found inside a pencil case by my dad. I never work when I’m feeling too serious. I think artists need an extra healthy sense of humour to survive. Otherwise, you come across as a pedantic know it all...I started making boxes, toys and collages with stuff my parents had at home (it would get me in trouble at times).” MORE

The Schwitters’ Army Collection of Collage Art at MERZ Gallery in Sanquhar, Scotland is a permanent collection of international collage art curated by Ric Kasini Kadour in January and February 2020. MORE
