Mixed-media works by Debra Hampton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
There are endless possibilities in the universe of collage art, and we really like what Debra Hampton has done with this series of works. Combining ??magazine cut outs, watercolor, and ink on panel, Hampton reimagines, arranges, and removes most identifiable elements of the model or person she is borrowing from and turns it into a surreal firestorm.

Jens Ullrich's Collage: A Fusion of Contemporary Sports and Classical Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 23, 2012
Jens Ullrich's collages have struck a chord between the contemporary athlete and the classical sculpture, carefully aligning these majestically poised bodies of stone alongside the twisting and flexing muscles of the human form in motion, a visual delight that is quite a simple gesture that arouses several visual and historical discussions.

Collage by Antony Zinonos

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 16, 2012
Antony Zinonos' bold and clean collages are playful, light, and compelling. Often invoking humor, each image is a conglomeration of vibrant, flat color, carefully plucked print images (with an emphasis on the vintage), and underlying narrative.

Works by Melanie Bonajo

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 25, 2012
Photo montage and collage have the inherent power to juxtapose and arrange strange and foreign subjects creating new associations from unlikely pairings, a re-occuring motivation and end goal for artist's working in this medium. The result from this process is usually a variety of relationships that are telling of particular aspects of the given subjects.

Collage Art by Nicole Wermers

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 28, 2012
Collage has the capacity to alienate, estrange, and transform objets and images into something entirely unrecognizable and new, harkening back to the source, but compiling new associations and new contexts. Magazines are packed full of images that are strange, familiar, and numerous all at once.

Collage Art by John Stezaker

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
London-based artist John Stezaker catalogues images from a variety of books, magazines, and postcards, using these printed photographic images as appropriating ready-made content in a new context, allowing its original and new context as a means to create associations and new meanings.

United States Currency Collage Art by Chad Person

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 12, 2012
Chad Person has made a bit of a career causing controversy and ruffling a few feathers with his political artwork, and here he has completed a series of collages created by rearranging US currency into the shapes of war machines. That tank is quite a great composition.

Perpendicular Dreams: Digital Collages by Julien Pacaud

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 09, 2012
With a great collection of surreal-inspired digital collages, Julien Pacaud has created a series that channels what he calls "Perpendicular Dreams." He works "with bargain-hunted vintage imagery and tries to go beyond the usual ‘cut and paste’ technique in order to create coherent-but- surrealistic strange worlds."
