Collage’s artistic collateral

FOKIANOU ART is pleased to present “Collage Remix”, a group show curated by Mary Cox and Panagiotis Voulgaris. The increasing popularity of collage among artists and art-appreciators is due to its ability to describe the world in a multifaceted way. Often using mass-produced images, it mirrors the historical and political context in which it is created. Because of the juxtapositions used in collage, the medium can avoid both linear thinking and traditional binary dichotomies. Additionally, by using found or readymade images or objects, the medium subverts the traditional importance of the idea of the lone creative genius, while also acting as a democratic, low-tech medium accessible by most people.

  1. It is perhaps interesting to note the following comment that a New Media Artist placed on one of my collages: ‘I think your fascination with layering images may be a fifth dimensional attribute in that it provides a way to present multiple times and places simultaneously.’ @ Bob Eige
