Collage derives from the French word “coller” meaning “glue”, coined by Braque and Picasso in the early 20th century. The advent of collage signaled a radical shift in art, in its conception, perception, process, & the end product. Collage has expanded the language of art, allowing for greater diversity and an increased range of expression. Using found, fragmented, and discarded materials, collage artists make a case for informality and improvisation.

  • Collage is ideally suited to capture the speed, time, and pace of the modern urban experience.
  • Collage records our civilization, capturing the topical, the transitory, the absurd, the humane and the inhumane.
  • Collage gives the uneventful, the commonplace, & the ordinary a magic of its own.
  • Collage often means working with whatever materials are at hand.
  • Collages are often made in improvisation, treating materials equally & reusing them regardless of their original purpose or origin.

… including the Skull Project collaborative collages by Collage-a-Rama artists
