Statement for Collage/Assemblage Centennial 1912-2012

I consider collage to be a fascinating and intriguing art form. The process of collage
involves an intimate and hands-on involvement with the medium and thus gives it a very
tactile feel. I particularly enjoy layering and piecing together of various materials to bring
an idea and concept alive giving it incredible charm and vitality.

In contemporary art Collage is a popular and highly valued art form. The artist possesses
the freedom to manipulate the medium in a variety of manners with out feeling restricted
into certain structured rules that other mediums may demand. The Art form is flexible
and varied because there is such a variety and wide range of collage materials that exist.
It is also a wonderful and versatile medium used by both beginning and experienced
artists alike and I particularly enjoy it because of its never ending possibilities for
exploration and experimentation.
