Collage in the Sculpture Park

Can a sculpture park show collage? The DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum did. In the seventy years since it opened, the museum has become one of the preeminent sculpture parks in the U.S. with over sixty works situated across thirty lush acres of woodlands and lawns. DeCordova maintains its commitment to contemporary, site-specific installations through a robust curatorial program. In 2019, they exhibited a monumental collage outdoors by New York-based artist Wardell Milan. MORE

Each issue of Kolaj Magazine is dedicated to reviewing and surveying contemporary collage with an international perspective. We are interested in collage as a medium, a genre, a community, and a 21st century art movement.

FROM THE ARTIST DIRECTORY

The Play of Color

Julia Payne, Wheeling, West Virginia, USA. For Payne, the pleasure in creating a collage is the play of color, shape and design; and how a theme emerges, usually an unconscious message, that has evolved by the time the piece is complete. Payne asks “What is enough? How can I create something meaningful and pleasing with the least possible elements?” MORE

Sacred Geometry

MJ Davison, Portland, Oregon, USA. A bold aesthetic inspired by the natural world and other-worldly realms. The structures and principles of sacred geometry are generators for MJ Davison’s fine art and design works. She seeks to give viewers places worthy of multiple return visits, with something new seen each time. MORE


COLLAGE ON VIEW

All Mine

Juan Hinojosa Installation at the Schaffer Library at Union College in Schenectady, New York, USA through Fall 2020. Hinojosa finds inspiration from the glamour of fashion magazines, television, and the lifestyle associated with New York City, but he questions our desires to be part of this world. He collects discarded items such as magazines, advertisements, postcards, and toys to arrange and play with, as a painter might arrange colour with paint. Hinojosa then uses these found objects to create what appear to be symmetrical compositions, although because he prefers not to alter or reproduce any of his collage material, they are, in fact, often asymmetrical in both his small collages and larger wall installations.

NEW BOOK

Collage Magic
by Emma Anna

Part autobiography, part fantasy, Emma Anna’s vision of The New Old World (aka The NOW) fuses vintage ephemera with modern imaging technologies. Emma shapes this strange world by using the pen tool from Adobe Photoshop as her magic wand, in the process declaring herself to be a “collage magician”. Part artist book, part document of art making, Collage Magic, from La Casa Verde Editions, is Emma Anna’s journey through magic and art. MORE
