Collage Art by Nicole Wermers

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. Nicole Wermers' collages harness the artillery of images within these readily available printed pages and creates pictures that are sculptural and spatially and temporally puzzling, depicting a world that is somewhere between the real and the abstracted imagination.
