The Los Angeles-based artist, who has shown at one of our favorite LA spots in Kopeikin, has had written about her work, "Her body of work strongly revolves around the theory of 'making' images instead of simply taking pictures..."

"Women have always been my inspiration," says artist Ben Reyer, "but at the same time they confused me - for me they are impossible objects. We covet them, run after them and love them, live with them, but it hard to understand them." Reyer weaves such themes as the influence of media on society, the horrors of war, religion, and sexuality into his collage work, with the intent of bridging the gap between art and kitsch. His work will be on display at the NENI ART Collective in Vienna, Austria on May 29th, 2013, starting at 7:00 PM.

As the art of collage, particularly in the realm of fashion, has become more and more ubiquitous in the last decade, it is consequently more difficult than ever to find truly original interpretations of the craft.

Multi-disciplinary artist Jock Mooney produces psychedelic pop images and installations, most recently focusing on the aesthetic possibilities of paper collage. Using thousands of hand drawn elements and deliberately spurning the use of xeroxed copies, his kaleidoscopic collages are inspired by a combined obsession for Japanese prints, 60's underground comics, and the Italian gialli genre of filmmaking, the latter heavily informing the often convoluted and pompous titles of his work.
