COLLAGE: A collage (from the French: coller, to glue) is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. ABLE: In a position to do something.
This is a blog devoted to collage. I love the fact that collage provides a really immediate way of creating unique and surreal combinations of objects and ideas that don't seem as though they have a right to go together, but do. Max Ernst said that: "collage is the noble conquest of the irrational, the coupling of two realities, irreconcilable in appearance, upon a plane which apparently does not suit them". I like that, and I am discovering more and more that I love collage!
