Collages get a bad rap. Yeah, they're a big part of the elementary-school art curiculum, but there's really nothing elementary about them. They require a tremendous amount of skill. To have a great collage, you need to mix perspective, scale, and imagination, on top of the standard rules of composition. To make it even just a bit harder, you have to use mostly found materials.
It's just harder than it sounds.
Anyhow, I stumbled across these collages by Kylea Borges today. I'm smitten. They're modern, yet nostalgic and keep your interest for hours. I love the play of geometric lines with the naturalistic photos. They're almost otherworldly.
These collages are just stunning.
