FROM THE ARTIST DIRECTORY

Larry Walczak

Erie, Pennsylvania, USA. "After living/working in the New York City area for decades, I returned to northwest Pennsylvania, where I grew up, to discover the lush visual landscape of the region. Here, I began to utilize natural imagery in my collages. Through direct imaging, I showcased flowers, leaves and other natural textures in a way to hyper-visualize the beauty and power of nature. Using coloured papers and areas of spray paint, I created a series of 'nature studies' that can appear as diagrams that are expressive rather than didactic." MORE

Uncollage in Photography & Filmography

For the first time in the magazine's history, we are featuring a photomontage on the cover, a work by Jerry Uelsmann. Inside the issue, Todd Bartel investigates uncollage in photography and film and discusses the work of Jerry Uelsmann, Fran Forman, Vik Muniz, Eadweard James Muybridge, and Oscar Gustav Rejlander. "Photography and film are particularly well-suited media for creating uncollages. Within the first two decades after the first fixed photograph in the mid-1820s, artists had already discovered a need to uncollage, and both types were prevalent," writes Bartel. MORE

Cut/Paste/Resist

The University of New Brunswick Art Centre, the Student Union Building, and the Creative Writing/Writer-in-Residence program seek art for a pop-up exhibition. The topic of "Cut/Paste/Resist" is resistance. "In other words, make a collage on a topic or concern you wish to communicate. What are you resisting?" MORE

COLLAGE ON VIEW

Run Off

Etty Yaniv at Main Window in Brooklyn, New York, USA through 13 February 2020. This installation coalesces thousands of fragments into an urban landscape, plastic and paper from shipping and packaging, scraps of architectural prints and drawings, altogether it becomes monumental yet fragile, reflecting on the delicate balance between water and land.

The Intersection of Collage & Painting

The question of when a work is a collage and when it is a painting is a good one to consider when viewing Shari Epstein’s work. She maintains a delicate balance between the two and operates at the intersection of collage and painting. A portfolio of Shari Epstein’s work appears in KOLAJ #27. MORE
