It was really interesting approaching a variety of different techniques in one day. After the process of collecting images we continued on to look at some practitioners and collage artists to get some inspiration. We looked at the work of
I particularly took inspiration from his use of ripped paper and confident approach. The us of block color against black and white works beautifully and is incredibly easy on the eye.
We also looked at the work of Hannah Hock:
I have in fact been interested of Hannah Hock’s collage work in the past within other projects as her style automatically appeals to me. The use of surrealism works really well in her pieces.
Ladislav’s work is far more minimalist, however this works really well. His use of white space adds so much to the mixed media pieces. This is a new dimension of collage that i had not thought about before.
I did feel motivated and inspired by their techniques, especially from those mentioned above.Their use of colour and their confident approach towards a page is what captured my attention the most. I took from this that i shouldn’t hesitate and need to change my attitude towards collage and creating large quantities of tests to see what works best.
