Collect, Cut, Composite
Collect, Cut, Composite is a celebration of contemporary collage. This exhibition highlights recent artworks by ten international women artists working in the medium's analog format. Especially in a time when our society has been forced to live much of our lives virtually, the presence of the artist's hand reminds us of the human element often lost behind the images presented on our glossy screens. Beyond engaging us with tactile components, however, each artist also invites us to consider their subjects in a new way. By repurposing or recontextualizing familiar images, they comment on such themes as female empowerment, the existence of an alternate universe, memory architecture, and the subconscious, among others. We hope you enjoy this collection!
